best hatches happen here in Sept-Oct and these guys in 14 and 12 get the job done.

Great job on this one Michael. Another of my favorite dry patterns.

Flip 6 months (northern vs Southern Hemisphere ) for best times here (obvious given the name March Brown). Same sizes too. Nothing warms me up on a cold early spring day like a hatch of these

There is a couple of still-waters not far from me where in the next couple of weeks the duns will start hatching in earnest. Its one of the few occasions when even the big lunkers leave the deep weed beds and slurp off the surface. Whats a lunker? Well I reckon if you can get a 3 count between the neb and adipose fin on a head and shoulders rise, that'll do.

Sounds like a way to define that "lunker" term. The loss of caution for the bigger fish makes this pattern one of my favorites. Only the Green Drake hatches seem to out "lunker" these.

Have seen pics of those green drakes and not even our Kossie duns come close in terms of size. No wonder they get the lunkers up.
