Opal Midge

See video

The Opal Midge is an easy tie and very effective midge larva pattern. I am tying this pattern on an Allen Fly Fishing N304 hook. This particular hook is a straight-eye, 2X-short shank, thin wire, emerger/scud hook. Check them out by visiting www.allenflyfishing.com

I generally fish this pattern in the late fall through early spring months. I generally find that in the winter months, the trout tend to pod in specific areas of the river, generally an area with lots of sunlight. These fish become very picky on what they eat. The mirage opal tinsel gives off a wide range of colors and the UV Clear Fly Finish head gives the fly's thorax a lot of depth and shine. I have had amazing results when using this fly, generally as the end fly in a tandem nymph rigging set-up. Tie some up and see for yourself!
