Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Plus Chocolate Brown, Hareline Krystal Dub Caddis Green, Hareline Hare’s Ice Dub Rusty Orange
Bead: 3.0mm Tungstean Gold Flysite

Nymphs with different thorax colors, the dubbings have some good sparkle in them and flows good once they are wet and is a good visual indicator in the water. These are quick and dirty nymphs that take 3 minutes to tie up.

Bead Midge Variations: 6 colors

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
