The Dads Favourite is a great wee dry fly, it catches so many fish... Represents our common small mayfly the deleatitium which is wide spread throughout the country.
If the Adams Parachute doesn't work tie on the Dads Favourite, if he doesn't work you might be in trouble
The Dads Favourite is available in sizes #12 - #18
It's one of my favourites too! I tie it without the wings which makes a quicker tie - the fish don't seem to notice!
Available here: Dads Favourite
