The Story

As far back as the 1600's, the March Brown is recorded as being a fly fishing pattern of choice in England. A must-have classic dry fly pattern. Imitates larger brown to tan mayflies, very effective from spring to early summer.

Size 12, 14.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong color Fly appears yellow. I've done well with March Browns that are in fact brown over the years in June.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from March Brown Dry Fly March brown is the native fly on my favorite trout stream in the northern Adirondacks. The stream is ~10 yards wide, runs through a very remote wilderness area, and is home to native brookies and moose. The Orvis Size-14 March brown is a winner on this beautiful stream.
