FROM THE VICE OF THE MAYFIELD TYER
Leonard Halladay (1872-1952) created the Adams Fly in 1922 for Charles Francis Adams an attorney from Lorain, Ohio. His biography, and additional research, has revealed that he was never a judge. The title of judge was simply conferred to him by his friends and acquaintances. The story of the creation of the Adams is well documented by, Harold Smedley in his book, "Fly Patterns and Their Origins," and has been confirmed by the Halladay family.
