The recipe is from "Tying Catskill-Style Dry Fly" by Mike Valla (page 148) - noted as: "a hybrid of the Darbee and Flick versions"
Wings: Wood duck
Tail: Dark brown hackle
Body: Light colored red fox
Hackle: Brown, mixed with grizzly

Trust me, a good March Brown dun pattern during a hatch can draw some seriously hair-raising strikes! Despite my screen name, the March Brown hatch is my favorite one to fish.
Offending the sensibilities of discerning trout since 1955

Nice fly. But the recipe I have is from the catskill tradition patterns and it was done by Dave Brandt.the body calls for ruddy tan red fox.
