Tiny midges are an important food source for all trout and, in many locations, they can represent the bulk of what the fish feed on. Many tailwaters (like the San Juan River) are almost exclusively a midge fishery with larva an important part of the trouts diet. Tied on a red hook, this pattern has the translucence of a real midge larva; a must have if you are fishing tailwaters and/or spring creeks. Available in size 20 & 22.
TIP: On many tailwaters this pattern seems to work the best in the morning, before the midges begin moving up in the water column to hatch. Try it earlier in the day and then, if it stops getting bites, consider switching to a midge emerger pattern.
