I think I will be tying up a Martis Midge - basically a blood midge emerger in size 16. WE killed em on the lake with these last year, and the hatch is just starting now per the hatch chart for the lake, only problem is we can't get the boat in the water due to all the snow on the roads. Might have to drive up, hike in a bit and launch the float tubes and test drive these before mailing though
- sounds like a good excuse to go fishing.
Here is a link
if your interested in reading about the midge pattern and seeing some local hatch charts and how to tie a few pretty effective patterns.
