Default LOVE IT when a plan...

...comes together...

Back in November 2009, I designed and named this Midge pattern after a friend who was not entirely convinced about the effectiveness of the color purple...

KEITH’S PURPLE DISBELIEF

HOOK: Mustad C49S, #18 – # 22

THREAD: Gordon Griffiths 14/0 Sheer Black, UTC 70, Dark Gray

ABDOMEN: Gray Tying Thread

OVERABDOMEN: Hareline Stalcup’s Micro Tubing, Clear

RIB: Wapsi, Wine, X-SM

WING: Royal Blue Krystal Flash, 3 strands

THORAX: ICE DUB, UV Dun

BEAD: Spirit River, Charcoal Metallic, SM

There is an acquaintance of mine named KEITH who squawked “PURPLE?” when he saw this pattern on my FB page. Well, he will squawk directly to his vise when I post some photos on his wall of just what this fly, in this color, can do. And, having named it after him, I will live rent free in his head…forever…heh,heh…

This is what my friend Keith and the Midge caught this past week on the Lower Kings River, near Fresno, CA...

PT: Sweet! A lot of people over look the effectiveness of midge patterns, and you tie some awesome patterns, great to see a plan come together like that.

If you get the chance to fish for fall summer runs on the Deschutes jump the hook size and bring a pocket full of those with you. Purple is an amazingly effective colour on that river.

Sweet tie!

One of my favorite flies for winter/early spring fishing to trout on Idaho waters is my KG's Deep Purple Peril Midge - purple works very well!
