Fly Tying & Fishing: March Brown Madness

Just weeks away or so are the March Brown hatches. The first significant, larger mayfly hatch of the season, it is well to study a bit on the habits of your March Brown. I say ‘your March Brown’ because there are several varieties depending upon where you reside. Rick Hafele goes over the East/West/In Between varieties and how they appear and behave. Time to tie those chucky clinger nymphs, emergers and duns. Read here at Rick Hafele’s Laughing Rivers post about March Browns.   More & More re Western MB’s. Pay particular attention to that migration from faster riffles into the slower seams and edges.

Fly Fishing: ‘Oh what a relief it is……….’

Awhile back, I remarked that I was having a heck of a time with a pair of Simms G4 Guide Boots. They never did feel right and caused a lot of aggravation to the outer ankle bone. More than once I was hobbling back some distance to the rig. Because of the excellent customer service at The Caddis Fly Shop in Eugene, Oregon, and Lou Verdugo, I made a trade of sorts for a new pair of Simms boots, the Guide Boot. Wow…what a relief. I ache enough with other maladies, so no pain in the feet is wonderful. (Best wishes to Lou!)
