  1. Sometimes you want a very flashy and easy to see midge larvae. In that case, this is the pattern for you! I always keep a few of these in my box when going to the river. If its fairly cloudy outside, or even when the water is a little mucky, I will tie this fly on to help the fish see it better. Hook: Daiichi 1270 (or any other long shank curved hook like Umpqua U203 or Mustad C53SNP-BR) Thread: Red, pink or (in this case) orange 8/0 sized thread (or 70 denier) Flash: Pearl flashabou Dubbing: Super flash dubbing Music: Sunny, funnysong - Bensound.com
  2. Midge larve are probably the most important food source for trout. They are always in the water, and there are times of the year that the fish will feed exclusively on these. So you must make sure and always have a supply of midge larvae imitators on hand. I never fish a stream without flies like the san juan worm, zebra midge, and this little fly, the midge larvae. The simple midge larvae is a very easy fly to tie and takes just a minute or two. You can crank out a few dozen of these in an hour. They only use 2 types of materials, and are fairly inexpensive to tie up, depending on the quality of your hook. You can tie these in any size you want, but I find that 14-26 is best Hook: Umpqua U203 size 14-26 (the Daichi 1270, or mustad C53S also work well) Thread: Uni-thread 6/0 in red (Or you can go thicker or thinner for a different profile) Music: funnysong - Bensound.com
