March Brown Soft Hackle

I am a big fan of soft hackle flies and one of my favorite books is Dave Hughes' Wet Flies. This book is absolutely essential for every fly tyer's library. The name is a misnomer. Here on the East Coast US, hatches are in May. Never a blanket hatch, March Brown's tend to hatch sporadically throughout the day. Simple pattern to tie - try adding some light brown CDC tied in after the hackle for a March Brown emerger.
