Pattern Description
This simple little pattern from Pat Dorsey has become a Rocky mountain tailwater favorite over the past few years. It's easy to tie and matches up well with many of the midges found on your favorite winter time haunts. Pat uses a craft store product called Glamour Madeira for the wing, but it can be pretty tough to find, so I have substituted white Fluoro Fiber in its place on the pattern shown here and I am sure it will work fine. You probably have all the parts for this fly already sitting on your bench so there's no reason not to sit down and twist a few up for your box. Get goin'...they ain't gonna tie themselves.
