Holo Midge

This simple little midge fly pattern can be tied in a number of colors. My top colors are the black/purple, red and orange. This fly is a good still water fly for imitating a chironomid or midge pupa, but my favorite application is on small creeks in the springtime. I swing this as a single or pair through tail outs on some of my favorite pockets.

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.
