Top Ten Flies for March 2024

March, while a bit on the wet side, fly-fishing enthusiasts have been undeterred, making the most of the gradually extending daylight in the mornings and evenings. This period of transition has not only brought about a shift in the environment but also in the tactics and tools of the trade, notably, in the selection of flies that have been remarkably successful.

In this months F4F Top 10 Chart, we have a range of patterns that have proven particularly effective during these challenging conditions. Leading the chart is the Green Snail. Its prominence isn't a surprise; given its role as a staple in the diet of fish during the colder, wetter months, the Green Snail's design allows it to drift effortlessly, mimicking the natural movement of real snails in the water. This fly's simplicity secures its top spot.

Securing a strong second position is the Grey Wulff. This fly's ability to stay afloat and visible, despite the choppy waters and heavier rains, makes it an invaluable asset for fly fishers. Its visibility and buoyancy, combined with a lifelike presentation, appeal to a wide range of fish.

The chart also features a selection of nymphs that have been indispensable during this wet month. The Klink n Dink, Red Diawl Bach, Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear, and the Greenwell Glory wet fly form a formidable line-up. Each of these nymphs offers something unique, from the Klink n Dink's dual functionality attracting surface and subsurface feeders, to the Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear's versatility and the subtle, natural appearance of the Red Diawl Bach and Greenwell Glory.

In light of our last week's newsletter, which introduced New Patterns within the last 12 months, the Standard Brown Drake has surged in popularity. Could this become a dominant player come the Mayfly season? Time will tell!

This F4F Chart makes a great selection, be sure you have some with you if heading out in the next few weeks. And remember to log your catches with us!
