March brown Nymph
The March Brown Nymph is a type of artificial fly commonly used in fly fishing. It is designed to imitate the nymph stage of the March Brown mayfly, which is found in many rivers and streams around the world.
The March Brown Nymph is typically tied on a hook using a combination of natural and synthetic materials, such as pheasant tail fibers and hare’s ear dubbing. The body is usually brown with a ribbed texture and a tapered shape.
When fishing with a March Brown Nymph, it is important to present the fly in a natural manner and to keep it near the bottom of the river or stream, where nymphs are commonly found. The fly can be fished on its own or as part of a tandem nymph rig, and can be effective throughout the year, but especially during the spring and early summer when March Brown mayflies are most active.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14 | 16
