The Texas Midge

This fly keeps getting sold out at my work. We cannot keep them in stock. They are some of the best, and most productive annelid patterns we carry. The deep ribs, and contrast with the thread and D-Rib create a super bold fly that attracts fish like crazy!

It took a few tries to figure out how to tie this fly, but after I figured it out, it really isn't all that difficult. I will say, the original that we have at our work doest have the black tag at the end, but seems to get the black ribs another way. While I can tie them that way as well, they take a bit longer, and I find this way is easier and quicker. Its also just as effective.

Here is a list of materials I used on the fly, and links to where you can purchase them.
Hook: Umpqua U203 in size 20
Red Thread: UTC Ultra Thread 70
Black Thread: Danville's fly master 6/0
Ribbing: Midge sized D-Rib in Red
Finishing Resin - Solarez "Bone Dry" UV curing resin

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
