March Brown Foam Parawulff

Having a variety of March Brown imitations can be key to a successful day on the water. On some days fish want a high floating traditional, on others they want a pattern that sits low to the water and more closely resembles the struggling emerging adult. In this video Barrett demonstrates using foam instead of dubbing to create a uniform water resistant body. He also shows us how to tie and divide a synthetic winging material called Sparkle Emerger Yarn. The March Brown Parawulff is highly effective late February-April when March Browns are emerging and fish are looking towards the surface. Use pale yellow Sparkle Emerger Yarn and a lighter foam body on a size 16-18 hook and you will have an excellent Pale Morning Dun pattern.
