    Default Bitter root River in MT fishing, but what dries are these?

    We've been sticking em on the root lately on skwala's and sj worm/stone fly droppers but March Browns started popping, and we aren't sure if they are amaletus, they are dark brown drakes, mottled wings, size 12-14.
    I'll try to get a photo of one if they will let me put up a pic here.

    I can't give you a name other than what you came up with. But I bet Chuck Stranahan can. He ties a pretty nice imitation of one and lives and guides out of Hamilton.

    Same size as our March Browns in the Sierras. I hear. Can't say that I've ever seen one in person. I just tied some size 12's for the Spring Swap here. Sure like to see yours if they are still around.
