  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Umpqua makes some fantastic flies. I have been fishing Umpqua flies for over 20 years, and they are the best quality flies I have purchased. the quality is unmatched as is the selection.
Buy Umpqua and slay the trout.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Either way, it sticks, just like your affection for this midge. This is a standout midge and is very versatile. Used it on a bounce rig today on the mid Provo and it did the job! As Brandon mentioned, lives a double life as a BWO. Recommended.


    So I've been nymphing quite a bit on heavily fished rivers this year and find that these guys work wonders even on the suspicious big boys lurking in the deep holes. Just enough glimmer to get attention but not too much to scare them away. Keep it small and simple and you will be rewarded.

    get midgy with it

      Just as the other reviewer stated on this page (Chris), this midge nymph pattern is money! Historically I have been rather skeptical of super flashy patterns, but after making a trip to Colorado last weekend and fishing quite a few rivers (and catching quite a few fish) I'm sold.

      Go to pattern

        This is by far my favorite Midge nymph pattern. Midge are confusing. size 18, 20, 22, 24? Red, black, zebra, blue, tan etc etc etc. THe jujubee midge, with that bit of flash and superhair wing casing seems to attract the fish no matter what. Get the size close and you are pretty much set.
