The Story

A beautiful little emerging midge with a parachute, so you can see it amid the others. Often a midge hatch can be a prolific to the point when it's difficult to determine your fly from the rest on the water. This midge fly pattern can solve the problem. Also, in size 18, it can work for a small mayfly emerger as well.

Fly in sizes: Black in (18, 20, 22), Olive in (18, 20, 22)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent midge imitation. I have fished this pattern in some of the toughest midge hatches i have experienced. It has always proved effective in a blizzard of a hatch. Floats great and sits on the water perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grinch This is a great fly for the tailwater i regularly fish. When there are no "popular" hatches the midges always seem to show up. Great imitation and easy to see on the water.
