When the March Browns start to get active this fly is just amazing!

This works well on the Henry's Fork during the PMDs (which is pretty much all season).

Kind of a transitional emerger.

My Genesee Jewel. There are lots of cream colored flies where I fish. This one works great.

It works pretty well in the East during the sulfur hatch as well.

I've had good luck on the Mad River with Alice Conba's version of the Greenwell's Glory, #14. She uses waxed Flymaster light olive thread for the body, no cobbler's wax over floss. This fly really works, even when there's not much doing.

I've always had good luck in the early season with a Queen of the Waters. The "put and take" browns on my local stream seem to love this fly.
