Pattern Description
Here's a brand new one for you! The Deep Blue Poison Tung Midge was conceived last winter after reading about the power the color blue has over unsuspecting trout. I tried a variety of different patterns, with varying amounts of blue and found that a simple rib was just enough. I think this fly is best represented by the sum of its' parts. The gray Ice Dub head provides the ashen look of an emerging midge and the blue rib shows up best in the depths where the fish feed the most. I have had great success with this pattern on such waters as the South Platte, the North Platte at Gray Reef, the Blue and Colorado, as well as the Frying Pan, where it never hurts to show them something a little different.
