March Brown Wet Fly tied by Jim Sens

Today Jim is tying a fantastic spring wet fly. Imitating a March Brown, this fly can be fished on the swing, in a nymph rig, or underneath a high-floating dry fly. It’s tied on a curved nymph hook, which complements the fly shape nicely. A small brass bead hidden in the thorax will help the fly get under the surface and fish like an emerging adult.
