Re: Lisenring's March brown

Hare , Partridge or Brown hen. Tail or no tail. Pheasant or no Pheasant. Gold or Copper wire. Brown, Black, or Orange thread

All these combinations work well for me, from Early Spring to Fall.

Size 16 and 14's

Re: Carpet muncher caddis

No, I do not think it is too big at all. Heck, it could do double duty as a Cranefly larva. Its a good looking pattern.
