Silver March Brown (varient)
tied by Alex_F
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Hook: 10 – 16 Partridge Cpt Hamilton or similar.
Tail: Brown Brahma Hen fibres (original, Brown Partridge).
Body: Flat silver tinsel.
Rib: Fine silver wire.
Hackle: Brown Brahma Hen (original, Brown Partridge).
Wing: Hen Ringneck Pheasant wing quill (primary/secondary), matched or folded.
Tying Instructions: Hackle is formed by tying in spider style then pulling and trapping the fibres with silk to form the beard.
Presentation Tips: Usually a middle dropper or point fly on a three fly cast. Very good imitation for gassed up March Brown ascender/emerger and also useful for corixa, hoglouse (freshwater louse), hatching chironomids. An excellent general attractor. Also a good 'change' fly for the slim silver invicta. Often more effective in smaller sizes.
