Old fly- anyone fish them? What sizes and colors and what type waters?

Always...one of my mainstay patterns. #12's and #14's mostly. Always white/brown. They float and bob like a cork, can stand multiple fish hookups before they need to be changed out, and fish love them. Hewitt really killed it with this one!

I am a big believer in fishing obscure patterns for the simple reason trout don't see them anymore. CJ

I did tie up some white/brown #12's. From my research that was the best color combination and size.  I was figuring on trying them on faster water where a trout doesn't have a lot of time to decide. They look "buggy" to me.

I tie them exactly the way CJ does and also with a Peacock body, brown hackle palmered up to a white hackle in the front. Both ways work well.

I'm told that some folks years ago thought maybe the trout thought they were a caddis.  I'm not sure a caddis rests on the surface of the water where their wings fold back over the body. I think the Adams was actually originated as a caddis imitation. Anyway- what times do you usually think- "This would be a good place/time for a bivisible"  Since they float well but don't look exactly like any particular insect I was thinking fairly fast riffles in the seams/chutes.

Its not a Delaware fly, though I am sure folks have caught fish with it there too.

I fish smaller water most, and the smaller the water the better it produces. Pocket water is where it really shines. CJ
