Product Description

If we were only allowed to fish one dry mayfly pattern for the rest of our days on the water, that pattern would be the Parachute Adams.  This Generalist pattern is one that we have returned to over the decades, and have effectively fished to match hatches from the Pacific Northwest to the Smoky Mountains.  You can fish it large for a mayfly or small for a midge.

Dry/Wet:  Dry

Fly Category: Generalist Pattern

Family: Mayfly, Midges & Chironomids

Species: NA

Life Stage: Adult

  1. Great looking pattern

    Posted by Gary Weihrauch on 19th Dec 2022

    These flies look great, they float well for a great presentation.

  2. Body unravels prematurely

    Posted by Gary W on 10th Nov 2022

    Great looking para Adams but the body unravels with normal use and the unraveling is expedited by hooking fish. I have tried several orders and I’ve experienced the same problem.

  3. Bodies are unraveling

    Posted by Gary W on 27th Oct 2022


    The last couple of orders of para adams have all had the bodies unraveling. This has occurred with and without hookups. They look great but lack on durability.

  4. Beautifully tied!

    Posted by Douglas George on 10th Feb 2021

    As a long time fly fisherman, I really appreciate the consistency of all of the flies I have purchased from Ascent. The Parachute Adams is one of my favorite flies of all time for late afternoon/evening fishing.

  5. Quick Ship

    Posted by Steve Patterson on 15th Jul 2020

    Fly quality was excellent but what is most impressive is shipment went out same day as ordered.
