    Thanks......

    Hey if nobody minds I'ld like to share the experience with my readers. Since I'm just getting back on the bench.

    Could be good Pr for NAFFF.......might get us a few more tyers on the forum.

    My NWW Blog is out performing the AFT one and I am pulling about 10,000 hits per month!

    Would like to bring AFT back up and tying is what it is all about!!

    Mailing mine Monday as well, working on toe tags, and gotta find a little box to put them in so the hackle doesn't get crushed.

    Here is the recipe.

    Martis Midge Emerger
    HOOK: Mustad 3906B #14
    THREAD: Brown
    TAIL: Flashabou pearl rainbow
    BODY: Bright orange Rayon
    WING: Elk hair, orange died
    HACKLE: Furnace

    To fish these you can put a little float on the orange elk hair and fish it in the film, if the fish are hitting lower in the column, trim the elk hair down to give it a "pre-emerger" profile, no floatant, you can add a small split shot if desired, and let the fly drift down, then a gentle very short tug retrieve to imitate the midge rising to the surface, then let it settle again, and repeat.

    I tied them in orange, the original for this pattern, but I have also had success with red elk hair on this pattern.
