Tying a few more flies

Finished up the batch of #18 Abigail Adams I was working on and then tied a few #16 Olive Bodied Adams (OBA). I tied these with a a black tail, olive gray dubbing, and a parachute-style wing with a cree hackle. There is more variation in the OBA than the traditional “gray” adams. The OBA has a long history on the Flyfish Listserver, and this tie might stretch the boundaries, but I like it. I thought that this looked good and and I hope a fish will too! I noticed when I looked at the zoomed picture, though, that I didn’t trim around the eye 🙁
