The Midge Fly - So Many Choices

There is nothing like a good midge.  So many colors and variations will work and they are not only for the winter season.  They are simple to tie and use a limited number of materials.  Take a size 18 or 20 wide gap scud hook with a body of thread, a rib of mylar, mono or fine wire and then choose a wing casing or bead and a bit of dubbing.   Try black thread, silver wire and a silver bead.  It's called the Zebra. Be creative as there are so many different Chironomids that it would be hard to be wrong.
