A March Brown tied as a modular feather body tied over a hook, with bottom mounted parachute wound between body and shank. #18 short shank dry fly hook.
Modular fether bodies? Put a thin #10 beading needle in the vise. Wax it up. Now wet it with fabric cement. Now tie a fly on it, with wing but not hackle. Slide it off the needle. Mount it on a hook. Take it from there.`
