Tungsten Crystal Midge

The Tungsten Crystal Midge is an extension of the popular Zebra Midge. I fish this pattern in sizes 16 down to 22 and use a little Solarez Bonedry to coat the body of the fly for durability. The Tungsten Crystal Midge is a great choice for pressured water either river or still water. Use a bead head and thread that is sized to the hook you are using. One the smallest flies I use 70d Ultrathread because it lays flat. I prefer the UNI-French oval tinsel, but a silver wire works great as well.

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.
