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

So I rarely have a situation when I need twelve feet of leader, so my experience might not be helpful...

I would get rid of the thingamabobber and use a very light indicator like a small yarn. Something just large enough to float the rig. My experience is that a midge take by a trout is VERY light. So a smaller indicator allows me to detect it better.

my vote for a pattern is a zebra midge with a little antron coming out the front for gills.

I also do my best to target fish. If I can't see them then I cast to where they should be... searching with a midge is hard.
