The MIcro Midge imitates many of those tiny midge nymphs with a very durable design.
Imitates: Midge larva, caddis larva, and many other small insects.
Useful for: Trout in any piece of water they are present, east or west. Its basic striped body gives good segmentation which is present on many insects.
Tricks/Techniques: The most consistent colors are absolutely the Red and Black versions while the other colors have their productive times. This is an amazingly simple yet effective nymph. It catches fish under an indicator or retrieved behind sinking or floating line. Deadly fished behind a floating line and 12′ fluorocarbon leader. Try a series of six short one inch strips followed by a long pause allowing it to fall for several seconds, then repeat. Imitating the natural rise of an emerging midge. A great addition behind any streamer when searching or trolling slowly. Give this one a shot behind a 12 foot greased leader when you cant figure out what their eating on the surface. A great addition to any two fly rig on moving water.
This fly is hand tied at my own bench in the United States of America under the highest of scrutiny. A tested and proven pattern.
