    I always had problems tying the traditional Adams. I could never get the wings right and it was frustrating every time I tried. Then I learned to tie a parachute wing, and never looked back. Just recently I thought I would try to tie a traditional Adams, again.

    Surprisingly, my many years of not tying it did not improve my skill, nor did it lower my frustration level when I tried it, today.
    I guess I'll stick to parachute wings.

    Steve, you're not alone, I too have the same issues with tying the Adams wings, so I just tie the parachute style, and I'm much less stressed.

    I should have mentioned, I went through 14 grizzly feathers to get tips for 4 flies of dubious quality.

    On a positive note, I have enough polypropylene yarn to last a couple lifetimes.

    That is way too easy. And I have to admit, part of my problem is the figure eight wraps.
    Okay, I'm going to try it, again using this method.

    Thanks, Norm.

    your welcome

    i think thats why tim neal posted the video. to make it easy

    once you have the wings separated. add a tiny drop of uv resin in between them and cure. eliminates the figure 8 wraps
