Default Re: Need Brown Drake Patterns

I tie pretty generic patterns. For brown drakes I like tie to #10 with pheasant tail tail and body, tan dubbed thorax tied parachute style with gray hi vis wing. Adams hackle(brown /grizzly) or cree. Simple fast tie.
I have had good luck with this on the South Branch and more so on thr Jordan(my favorite river). I you do not have time or do not tie Gate's lodge fly shop will set you up and is also a good place to stay.
Eric
