Brassie

Uses

Useful during midge hatches and when small mayflies, such as blue-winged olives and pale morning duns are in season. The weight of the wire helps the fly get deeper.

When you look closely at the dressing, you'll realize that this fly should be called a "Copperie" not a "Brassie".

Variations

Other useful body colors are red and chartreuse.
