A while back, I pointed to Don Bastian’s site, Don Bastian Wet Flies. I made an observation re his personal life that probably was not my place to make and suggested he was taking a break of sorts. I was wrong and apologize for that inappropriate comment. In fact, he is at full capacity and I am highlighting what most trout fishers would twitch over…a simply, perfect Adams Wet Fly. Utilitarian and elegant at the same time. Check out Don’s site for the pattern, below, and for everything about the classic, winged wet fly.
