Description of the Brown Micro Mayfly Nymph - Fly:

The Brown Micro Mayfly Nymph is a very effective nymph fly for spring creek and tailwater fly fishing. The brown version is a useful PMD and baetis mayfly imitation when trout get a bit picky and look for deep drifting may flies.

Pros: This brown Micro Mayfly Nymph is a lights out pattern and you’d do well to pick up a dozen or so! About two years ago I was fishing on a local trout stream during a BWO hatch and my go to emerger pattern just wasn’t doing it. I pulled one of these brown Micro Mayflies out of my box, tied it on and the storm gates opened; I was rewarded with one explosive take after another for the rest of the afternoon! I continue to have great success w/ this fly doing well on Cutthroat Trout out in Wyoming and have done well fishing for Steelhead Trout out here on the west coast and well as local rainbows. I’m sure I’ll do just as well on the brownies and brookies once I get a chance to throw these at them. This pattern is also dynamite in the olive color as well, so make sure you pick up a few of them too.
Cons: I can’t think of any cons for this fly other than its small size and small hook, but I just size down on my tippet fishing it on 5X or 6X and I haven’t had any issues. I’ve only bent out a couple of hooks, but those were on brute rainbows over 20 inches. I was really leaning on them trying to keep them from shooting down a flume, but hook failures have been almost non existent, so that shouldn’t discourage you from fishing these. I’ve landed several steelhead on these, so you can fish them w/ confidence.
Other Thoughts: You’d do well to pick these up by the dozen, as when the bite goes off you don’t want to be caught with only one of two of these. The takes I get on this fly when they’re really biting is nothing less than vicious and they will destroy your fly over time, so keep several of them on hand. I often fish these two at a time one brown and one olive to get a sense of which one they’re keying on. Do yourself a favor and pick up a dozen of these in both colors or at least a half dozen of each as between the fish and your fishing buddies you’ll go through these in a hurry.

Pros: This is a go to fly on the water I fish normally. Between these and the olive version I pretty much use these all year round.
Cons: None
Micro Mayfly 1
Rating: 4 of 5 [4 of 5]
Reviewed by: Martin on 12/17/2008
Experience Level: Pro - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: The flies were tied well and followed the original recipe fairly well. I did not have any problems with durability, and the hooks seems to be of good quality. Packaging for shipping was excellent - probably some of the best I have seen. My order got to my door quickly and everything was well protected.
Cons: The flies were tied on a curved-shank scud hook instead of the straight hook (as pictured) and as the original recipe calls for. In addition, the curved hook in the same hook size is slightly larger than the equivalent straight-shanked hook, which means that the flies come out just a bit bigger. The problem is then that the fly is actually almost a size bigger than anticipated when ordered by hook size alone. This was an unexpected discovery.
