Default Purple Haze

spelThis may be better suited for the "Fly" forum, but I figured more use them than tie them. So here goes.....

A friend has suggested strongly that I bring some "Purple Haze" Adams with me to Montana this July (first week). We will be fishing the East and West forks of the Bitterroot, the Lochsa, and the Selway among others. I have seen them tied in the parachute configuration. Has anybody tried them in the conventional wrapped hackle style? Which is better? He also told me not to tie them too small, and suggested 14's and 12's. Anybodies thoughts?

One more question: what is your favorite dry fly flotant?
