Default Re: Fishing Midge Nymphs.... Need some help!

I probably fish Midges more than any other patterns, They account for most of the larger fish I catch on Eastern Sierra tailwaters. I fish them deep, with twist-ons, bounced off the bottom with a flashy attractor as my lead fly...this is where they are most effective:

These are some of the Midges I use for this river...

...occasionally, I will use dries...the fish in this river are generally NOT looking up...and they range in size from #18 - #24
