Looking For Midge Patterns

October 7, 2008

Any advice or suggestions on size and color of midge patterns that work in the Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa area would be appreciated. I am going to spend sometime tying my winter season flies soon and would like to be one step ahead of the game before I hit the water. I read this article and found it to be informative and helpful.

  1. Hi,

    I’d recommend you tie a variety of zebra midges, in black, olive, brown, and even red. Thread body, silver wire, a bead, a little dubbing to match thread color. Very simple patterns to tie.
