Ginger Midge

Easy to tie. Not fancy. But it works! We love the ginger colored ultra wire. This color looks great for ribbing midge and Baetis patterns. This is essentially a mercury midge with ginger wire. Super easy to tie. Load up your box. Try an alternate version with olive thread. You will be glad you did! We primarily use size 18-20, but larger sizes work great too.
Hook: Tiemco 2487 or 2457 or Daiichi 1120 size 16-22
Bead: Tyers Glass Bead Pearlescent or Silver Lined
Thread: 70 Denier Cream
Rib: Ginger Small Ultra Wire
Coating: Optional! Bone Dry Solarez

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.
