2014 What does it look like to you?
I see a big problem in the year ahead...NO SNOW, NO RAIN!!!
What are we to do as fisherman?
Last time i checked San Antonio was stuck at 5% capacity, a dismal
number to hear. Nacimiento 24% and who knows when we will get enough
water to refill? The Merced was a trickle last September... There hasnt
been decent snow or rain anywhere in California in quite sometime.
It may be tough to make those yearly plans work this time around.
Time to think about Large bodies of water? Tailwater rivers?
Ask your friends at the next meeting Im sure we all know a spot that will
have water somewhere...Or Maybe The ocean?
|The Parachute Adams is a
legendary fish catcher that
no serious fly angler
should be without. There
are a great many attributes
to the Parachute Adams but
most of its popular status
is due to its unique ability
to imitate the numerous
members of the mayfly and
caddis families. If no
hatches are present on the
water the Parachute Adams
can be equally successful
as a searching pattern.
The Parachute Adams can
be productive wherever
you decide to drift it. Slow
or slack water pres-
entation is one of the
unique parachute post
design allows the fly to ride
lower in the surface film
creating a realistic
silhouette to on-looking
trout. In these slow water
conditions trout have an
extended time to examine
flies drifted overhead so
using flies that more
closely resemble the
natural insects, like the
Parachute Adams, gives
you the best chance to
consistently catch fish. For
the faster runs or riffles
the horizontal hackle will
allow the fly to not only ride
lower but have better
floatability keeping it high
and dry longer than most
other standard dries
