Big fish live deep.
Who named this thing?
- Gender: Female
- 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.
Great Year Round
Charlie Craven killed it with this one! Works year round depending on your river and what size/color you use. Great fly for even the most selective of trout on rivers such as the Provo. Doubles well as a Blue Wing Olive too.
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.
