The UV Tease is a highly visible midge on multiple levels. It gets plenty of attention with a UV krystal flash tail and Loon UV coat.
Imitates: Larger chironomids/midge in Pyramid Lake.
Useful for: Nymphing for giant Lahontan Cutthroat under an indicator just off the bottom at slow sloping beaches. Equally as effective near sharp drop-offs/ledges near the shore.
Tricks/Techniques: Nymphing under an indicator is the preferred method for early fall and spring fly fisherman. Keep the depth under the indicator shallow when fishing near sharp drop-offs or when fish are visible breaching the surface early and late in the day. Try retrieving this behind a Bottle Rocket, Tadpole or Beetle if watching an indicator just isn’t your thing. I wouldn’t recommend fishing tippet lighter then 3X ever at Pyramid, sharp teeth tend to shred the light stuff. Although, this pattern was originally tied for nymphing in deeper water with the thought of the UV qualities carrying further with less available light, it’s proven itself in plenty of shallow applications as well.
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.
