Note :

I tied this fly after Lou Marasco was doing a demo on woven bodied flies at our local TU meeting. I got the materials and played around a bit. On the day after Christmas, my 4 year old daughter wanted to learn how to do the weave. She ties a nice green weenie and honeybug. Anyway, she picked the colors from a small assortment of lights and darks, and we worked together to tie this fly. On New Years Eve (freezing), I went to the Little Lehigh with a group from our chapter. I tried midges and many small nymphs with no success, so I tried Molly’s Fly that she tied. On the first and third cast below the lunker pool, I caught two nice ones before putting her fly on display with about 20 others just 4 feet above the water in that darn tree. You know the one!
I’m a rookie tier and will improve with practice, so be gentle when critiquing this fly. Besides, it will catch fish!

Cabin Adams (Patented)
Tied By Padraic Farrell (Cabin Adams)

Hook: Standard dry fly
Tail: Red floss
Body: Adams gray superfine dubbing
Overwing: Squirrel Tail (I use the hair from the base of the tail, as these hairs are short and still have the characteristic mottling of color)
Wing: I omit this in smaller sizes, but I use Antron for visibility
Hackle: Grizzly (I often trim the bottom)

Instructions:

A tip to make the fly a bit more durable... Reverse hackle the fly and rib the hackle. The steps for that are; I tie the hackle in so that the feather is extending out over the eye. Then I wrap back over the stem toward the overwing. This ties in the feather. When I hackle the fly, I again work back toward the overwing and tie that down. Before clipping the excess feather off, I work the tying thread back to the eye. Wiggling the thread keeps the feather fibers from getting tied down. Then I whip finish at the front and clip off all the excess from the thread and hackle feather.
