Midge larva and pupa are a constant food source for trout in tailwaters, freestones and stillwaters, especially in the winter and early spring. When midges become a pupa and are getting ready to hatch, they often exhibit exposed, bright white gills right at their heads. This pattern has a Z-lon fiber tuft extending from the bead at the head of the fly, making it a great match of a real midge pupa. Available in sizes 16 & 18.
TIP: This pattern works well in tailwater in a 2 fly set-up under an indicator. Try a Rasta Bugger or a Pine Squirrel Leech as your bottom fly.
