The Story

This flashy midge pattern is extremely effective when fished as a dropper or beneath a small yarn indicator on slow, clear streams. Spring creek and tailwater trout love the colors and thick thorax profile. Don't be afraid to go small with this fly. With a good drift, even the big trout will munch on the size 22.

Sizes 18, 20, 22.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have Midge larva’s are an essential add to everyone’s fly box. These work year round and often when nothing else does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for picky fish This is a great fly to use in clear, high mountain lakes where the fish are picky about what they'll take.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go for Red Effective in early Spring Virginia water as trailing nymph. Attracts big trout but more so than other midges seemed to turn off fish after a few casts/fish.
