    Hans, this looks like a Catskill winged version of an Adams. Two thumbs and two big toes up as it's a very nice looking fly. Shame us duffers don't have the same tying skill as you.

    Nice Adams.
    Jack

    Oops. On looking at full size photo; not an Adams but close.
    Nice tie as always.

    *chuckle*

    Let's see... mixed brown and grizzly hackle and tail - no check, grizzly hackle tip wings - no check, muskrat body - semi check. Yep, Adams...

    hey.... I checked his recippee for exact Adams components. Shoot, it's close enough for government work.

    I don't know how exacting the tyers are in the Netherlands but here in Moses Lake as long as it looks like a bug may have looked and floats for more than 5 seconds..... it's a good fly.

    Hans, have you ever been to the big town of Moses Lake? It's an experience all Europeans should indulge in.
