      Copper & Tan

      The Copper & Tan is a productive early spring pattern for me. Extremely effective in a classic swing through tail-outs immediately following a March Brown hatch. I prefer to grease the tippet leaving the final 6-8″ of tippet without floatant, keeping this pattern in or near the film throughout the swing. Simple to tie and simple to fish.
