Jimmie,

This is the recipe for that fly:

SIMPLY RED…(And, PURPLE)…

HOOK: Gamakatsu C12-B, #18
THREAD: Tiemco 16/0, Black
BEAD: 5/64 Black Nickel, (4 wraps 0.10 lead)…or Tung
ABDOMEN: Red Krystal Flash
RIB: Wapsi, Silver, xsm
THORAX: Spirit River Iridsescent dyed peacock eye, Purple

This is a variation of Craig Matthew’s ” Bloody Midge”, out of his BRF Shop, using a new product for the thorax from Spirit River…

It worked extremely well at the "BEWITCHIN' HOUR", when the sun was off the water at sunset...

This is Michael, at the gauge, on the East Walker... at sunset - using Simply Red...

PT/TB
