RK's Wired Pupa

This is one of my go-to midges all year long. I use techniques of two of my favorite flies, the "rojo midge" and the "poison tungsten". This midge pupa/ emerger pattern is tied on an AFF N201 (down-eye, 3x --long, humped-shank nymph hook). Again, Allen Fly Fishing continues to create excellent hooks at an excellent price. Check them out at I will generally tie size 16 through 18 when fishing lakes and size 20 through 22 for rivers. The size of the Ultra Wire I use depends on what size hook I am tying.
Brassie Ultra Wire / Size 14 or 16
Small Ultra Wire / Size 18 or 20
X-Small Ultra Wire / Size 22 through 26

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.
