This 'Midge Emerger' has proved quite effective for me when used to imitate emerging midge and/or crippled midge that are trapped in the meniscus and being picked off by the trout.

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.
