pyramid-mahalo-midge-albino-wino

Color: Albino Wino (cranberry)

Sizes: #8-12

The Pyramid Lake Mahalo Midge has many different variations. Ultimately a holographic bomber style midge tied on a hook made for twenty pound trout.

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: The most consistent colors are absolutely the Black, Red and Albino Wino versions, while the bright colorshave their occasional hot days. Nymphing under an indicator is the preferred method for 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 during early spring mornings.Try retrieving this behind a Bottle Rocket, Tadpole or Beetle if watching an indicator isn’t your thing. I wouldn’t recommend fishing tippet lighter then 3X ever at Pyramid, sharp teeth tend to shred the light stuff.

Recipe

Hook: Orvis 1524, TMC 5262
Bead: White Glass or Brass
Thread: Black Danville’s Flat Waxed Nylon
Rib: Silver Wire
Body: Cranberry Holographic Tinsel
