Notes on tying:
1. Begin by tying in 2 grizzly hackle feathers, back to back, about 1/3 of the hook shank back for the wings. Tie them in with a figure 8 wrap.
2. Tie in brown and grizzly hackle feathers for the tail (hook shank length).
3. Dub gray muskrat fur for body to behind the wings.
4. Select two hackle feathers (1 & 1/2 times hook gap) and tie in concave side forward. Wrap each hackle feather 2 wraps behind the wing and two wraps in front (leave about 1 eye length of space behind the eye opening).
5. Tie off and finish head.
The fly originated in Michigan by Leonard Halladay. It was later field-tested by his friend Charles Adams who it became named after.
