Pattern Description
The Rojo Midge comes from the vise of Greg Garcia. Many of you know Greg from his work in one of our local front-range shops. He is a super nice, soft-spoken guy who really gets into his tying. Methodical would be a good descriptor for Greg's work. The Rojo was Greg's first pattern with Umpqua feather Merchants, and it was a wise choice. The small glass bead combined with a gill tuft and bright wire rib make for a killing fly. Fish the Rojo as you would any other midge pattern, with some weight on the leader and an indicator. Greg assures me that it will make a believer of you too!
