Invicta Flies - Pheasant March Brown
Fly Patterns  ~  Helpful Information  ~  Waters (photos)  ~  Your Input ~  Home       


There are many good variations of the March Brown pattern. This one uses hen pheasant body feather tips for the wings, providing a nice pattern with all the appropriate colors. Leaving the tips full as I have done here works well, or you can trim/burn the ends to a more realistic wing profile.
