Fly tying video: March Brown Parachute

This fly tying video demonstrates how to tie a high-visibility March Brown parachute fly — that fluorescent wing post is good for rainy days. A parachute pattern sits lower in the water than other dry flies and it makes an excellent wing silhouette. March browns have been coming off on the lower McKenzie River and the hatches will continue for the next month.
