Isn't the Parachute Adams a Gray Body? Doesn't that pass for a kind of clear or "crystal" coloration?

And do they have a Whitish fly like that in the Rocky Mtns where I am?

This thought has been in the back of my mind. Is there a pattern that is sort of, well...not White, but a "crystal" Mayfly pattern? You know, sort of an all-clear or "flashabou" pattern.

Sorry if this is like, totally dumb (ha ha) but I have to ask.

So is there sort of a "crystal" pattern to imitate this Crystal--colored Mayfly?

Is it the Gray Bodied Parachute Adams which would serve to imitate the Mayfly in your photo?

.
Para adams can be tied in any color, to imitate any mayfly that hatches- BWO, PMD, PED, to any other body, from grey, to black, to purple (ever heard of the purple haze?).

Most places in the West have a hatch of some sort of bug species that are white in color.
