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 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.
