    I went last night to the WMFF meeting in Ludlow. Dan was great. Had a ton of info and made it interesting while showing how to tie half a dozen different flies. Met a couple nice guys and joined the group. I'd love to take their tying class but can't due to scheduling. However, I also joined the local chapter of TU last week and will be taking their beginner's class in Feb. Learned the Wooly Bugger at the meeting last week and have been busy working on them. Getting a good little stockpile going in different sizes and colors. Coincidentally, the Adams was/is next on my list before I saw your post, Hiviz.

    Thanks again, guys.
    --Seriously...it was THIS big!

    You can't go wrong with a Woolly Bugger. I've yet to meet an experienced fly fisher who doesn't have and use them.

    And I should have noted that I fish the parachute adams, not the classic version. I find that parachute flies work better for me. I use fluorescent pink polypropylene material for the post, as it makes the fly much easier to see.

    Good luck!
