Re: Any Good Colorado Midge patterns?
Try this one out! Its a very simple pattern and its one been probably the most consistent patterns on my home waters, the tailwaters of the sierras, for the last 3 years. Its also worked well in idaho and montana.
I dont have any pictures because im not at home with all my tying gear but its not too difficult.
Take your favorite curved shank midge hook slide an extra small mercury bead onto the shank, lay down a light dun thread body and rib with 8/0 uni thread.
Coat the whole thing in UV knot sense. This thing is simple, realistic and bombproof.
