Brown Bear Tackle Box Fly Patterns

Please read the patterns carefully before attempting to tie them.

This will help avoid frustration. I have tried to put the pattern down in order of construction and some of these can become complicated and time consuming.


  Name - Adams

  Hook - Standard dry 10-20
  Thread - Grey or Black
Tail Mixed Brown & Grizzly hackle fibers 
Body Dubbed grey muskrat 
Wings Grizzly hackle tips - tied upright and divided 
Hackle Brown & Grizzly wound together
This is a very effective fly almost anywhere that one can find fish that will take flies. It is reported to have originated in Michigan.
Some claim that Dunn hackle tips seem to work better for wings.
