Tiny Midges

2014.07.29.midge_22

Hook: Mustad 94840 #22
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail: Leftover black hackle from Whiting
Body: Hends Superfine
Hackle: Whiting Bronze

It has been a busy summer with a lot of fishing, this particular midge in size #18 got me a 850gram grayling up north, so I need to get some more, but in even smaller size. Easy to tie up (as long as you have small enough hackle) and the fish will hunt this down!

Midge season is coming shortly and one of the things you need in the box here in Norway is this palmer midge. A very simple pattern that is quick to tie up a row of in sizes from #14 down to #22

dryfly.me.2014.03.27.palmer_midge_sideThe cork where I have mounted the midges comes from the Sorachi Ace bottle from Brooklyn brewery – if you get a chance to taste this I would recommend sharing a bottle with a friend!

After the “Black and White” midge I created the other day I had to tie up a batch with the different floss colors I had to see how they came out. Quite happy with the color selection, and the next thing will be to test these in water to see how they turn out color wise before I tie up a larger batch for the summer
