Blueberry snowcone midge

tied by hampe998
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Material List:
Hook: TMC 2488 size 22
Thread: 14/0 white
Bead: white glass(peacock color works good too)
Underbody: thread with strip of Mirage flashabou down the back
Body: blue midge tubing
Tying Instructions: Slip the bead on then tie in the tubing. Tie in the flash to the bend, pull it up to the bead then tie it off. Wind the tubing all the way up to the bead, tie off, whip finish, go fish. I tie it from size 16 to 22. Works fine in lots of colors but blue seems to do real well in the winter.
Presentation Tips: I either fish it as a dropper in a double nymph rig or hang it off a dry depending on where the fish are feeding.
