Sipper Midge

Tying with Hans - Sipper Midge. Our take on the bighorn river classic. This is a simple fly pattern that packs a punch. Fish this for selective trout feeding on midge adults or even emerging midges. Tie this in several body colors- namely black, olive, grey, and cream. Fish this with just a bit of floatant rubbed onto the post and hackle. Don't put floatant on the abdomen of the fly. That allows the body of the fly to hang below the waters surface. Fly tying videos by Hans Stephenson of Dakota Angler & Outfitter.
