  4. March Brown Emerger tied by Carl Fryer demonstrates an overlooked and very effective pattern for early spring emergences of the March Brown Mayfly.

It can be tied with a variety of materials for the wing and body but my favorite combination is an Crystal Antron Chenille body with a Kinky Fiber underwing topped with natural Bucktail. A Bendback can actually be tied without bending the hook eye back, which today you may have to do if you choose to use the modern steel hooks that tend to be very strong but will break before they bend. The older Stainless Steel hooks such as Mustad's old 34007 are very good for making bendbacks. This is a great bass fly too; you can even use the hooks made for plastic worms that have a bent back eye. Good Luck and Keep on Tying. Kirk<br><br> Watch the Video

Capt. Mark Brockhoeft of Big Red Guides mentioned to me that he wished his "go to" winter fly, would last for more than a couple dozen fish. Even when superglued, the barbell eyes would start to twist and take the wing around the hook shank with it. Before you say a couple dozen fish is plenty on one fly, you've got to realize its common for Capt Mark's clients to catch 50, 75, and sometimes 150 redfish during the winter. The large beads from Spirit River are great for deep water (3 - 4 feet and deeper). If you want this fly for shallow water, use the hollow Split Cyclops Beads from Cascade Crest Tools. With the application of Zap-a-Gap to the underside of the fly, Capt Mark reported that the flies were lasting for 75 fish before being lost to the bottom. Finally, the fly stayed on the end of a client's line for two consecutive 75 fish trips before he took it off and gave it to the man as a souvenir of a great couple of winter redfish trips. That being said, I have since caught many bass and speckled trout and even some catfish.<br><br> Watch the Video

I worked on this on and off for most of 2011 before I was satisfied. The Faux Fox fibers it is tied with absorb water but the foam spider head counteract some of that to make a seductively slow sinking or hovering fly that glides from side to side during pauses between strips. Use a non-slip or similar mono loop to attach it to your tippet.<br><br> Watch the Video
