“Tied in 1922 by Leonard ‘Len’ Halladay of Mayfield, a renowned fly fisherman, fly-tyer and guide, Halladay made the fly for his friend, Judge Charlie Adams. Naming the enduring creation after his friend, the Adams fly has been billed as the most popular dry fly in the world.” Michigan’s Kingsley Library will celebrate the birth of the Adams dry fly in a two-hour “salute” on Sunday.
