THE DJG MIDGE - Fly of the Week - January 31, 2011
THE DJG MIDGE
I first started tying this pattern quite a few years ago. I just happened to come up with it during a trip to Bennet Spring State Park with my brother. There was a midge hatch coming off the water.*I caught one out of the air to have a look. I didn't have anything quite that small, so on our lunch break I bought a box of size 24 Mustad hooks and tried to come up with something that looked similar to the midge I'd caught. It took several tries, but I had a winner before lunch was over. I've been fishing them ever since.
