I watched a really good tyer from Last Chance tie small floating nymphs, mostly for PMDs on the Henry's. He used thin foam as the wingcase to suspend the bug in the film and said they can kill the fussy rainbows there when everyone else is getting skunked with every sort of dry and emerger.

So I adapted that idea of the floating nymph for this March Brown emerger after reading that the March Brown nymph's wings break out as it emerges unlike other mayfly duns that pop on the surface. Just an experiment that won't be proven for another month or two.

dean_mt,

March browns are not the only May Flies that emerge as adults...so do Epeorus - otherwise known as the "Pink Lady". They are extremely important on the Madison...this pattern could be adapted for March Browns as well:

FAST WATER EMERGER – EPEORUS…Nemec/Variant …

THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Lt. Cahill

HOOK: Daiichi 1760, #18

SHUCK: Olive-Brown Zelon, sparse

RIB: Pearl Krystal Flash

ABDOMEN: Yellow Marabou and Tan Marabou, twisted together

FORWARD WING: Two small bunches of Yellow Sparkle Emerger Yarn

FORWARD WING/POST: Small cylinder foam, Yellow – Rainy’s

HACKLE: Cream

An adaptation of Jan Nemec’s Fast Water Baetis. He’s out of Reno and quite an interesting tier…If it is desired to float a bit more flush in the surface film, trim the bottom of the hackles into a "V:...

AWESOME! Thank you so much.

Great looking bug, man. I am not familiar with that mayfly, I don't fish the Madi very often and it isn't talked about as an important hatch in these parts.

I was going for a sparse floater nymph/emerger hybrid and didn't want the hackle. I also think that rearward pointing wings might be more natural with the mallard flank. It really is an adaptation of a classic soft-hackle and floating nymph.

I particularly like that abdomen; do you palmer the marabou? How do get such short fibers? I'd love to use that body on the March Brown.

Also, what do you use to light your flies for photographing? Do have a light box or what? Your images are first class!

Nicely done Bill, are you going to 'riffle hitch' that?

I'll try a dead drift first, then hitch it, twitch it, skate it, or wake it to see if one will come up for it.
