One thought on “Fishing Montana’s March Brown Mayfly Hatch

  1. I was fishing European March Browns on a few western British rainfed (freestone) rivers this March and April with occasional marked success. One generic British March Brown pattern (and other lighter hued epherids) pattern is worth considering – The Jingler. Here is a video of a Brit with a very London – South East English accent tying one. Vary the sizes, materials colo(u)rs and how much material you dress the hook with, and you have a rough and ready but highly effective dry fly for all seasons wherever you may fish. Maybe add a little CDC, too, if you want a higher floater…. Soft hackle wet fly and beadhead versions also work well. Don’t overdress the pattern, though – tie its as sparse as you can “get away with”.
