About the Adam_1 Trout Fly
Ray Bergman created this fly in the 1920s for his home waters in Michigan and is probably the most popular pattern in America.
It is a "must have" in any trout fly box on both sides of the Atlantic being a very acceptable likeness of an Iron Blue and a good match for several American and European up-winged flies.
The true riches are to be found in an angler's soul, not his wallet.
