Surefire Midge

One of those simple patterns that never seems to fail. This little black midge with a trailing UV shuck is, as the name suggests, a foolproof choice when the fish are on anything small and black. The up-side down hackle gives this midge a slightly lower profile when presented. Best in sizes from 16-24.

Hook: Mustad Heritage C49 X Barbless # 18
Tying thread: Sheer 14/0 black
Trailing shuck: UV enhancer grey
Abdomen: Black tying thread
Post: Small foam cylinder white
Hackle: Natural black cock
Thorax: Black superfine dubbing

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.
