The Barbless Adams selection.

A selection of 16 barbless Adams Flies, comprising 4 different patterns (in 2 sizes). The Adams fly is one which should be in all river angler fly boxes. This style of fly was originally tied by Leonard Halladay and named after his good friend Charles Adams (from “The History of Fly Fishing in Fifty Flies”, by Ian Whitelaw (https://www.amazon.co.uk/History-Fly-Fishing-Fifty-Flies/dp/1781314012).

Nobody is really sure exactly what his fly imitates, but it is one of the all time greats.

Each of the flies in this selection can be bought individually, just click on the link in the fly name below.
