Mercury Midge - Glass Bead Midge - Beginning Fly Tying - Mercury Midge - Glass Bead Midge. This is one of the best flies to begin a tying career. These flies are simple to tie. Tying a glass bead midge teaches how to wrap thread and how to rib a body. Probably the best reason for tying this pattern is, that despite being so simple to tie, it catches loads of fish. For the waters I regularly fish, it makes more sense to tie a few dozen of these rather than tying a box full of wooly buggers. Vary the thread colors to include black, olive, and red bodies. The availability of wire and thread colors makes for endless color combinations. - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher
