Smoke Jumper Midge Emerger

 
tied by Flicted
Fly Type: Terrestrials & Midges,
Target Species: Panfish, Trout,
Recommended Region: Northwest US, Central US, Western Canada,
Material List:
Tail (Shuck): Mallard Flank Fibers
Rib: Small Gold Wire
Body: Flat thread or floss
Thorax: Peacock Herl
Wingcase/Wing: CDC
Tying Instructions: Tail represents a shuck so it should be about the length of the hook. Body material can be floss, thread, quill, or biot. Once the CDC is folded forward for the wingcase, make a few wraps and adjust alignment, then use a bodkin to pull some slack in the wingcase. A bubble will often form there and give a neutral buoyancy. When finished, wing should extend at an angle over the eye, about a hook gape in length. Best when tied on a down-eye, scud hook.
