Syl's Midge

Created by Sylvester Nemes


Useful during midge hatches on rivers, where it resembles a drifting pupa. It's particularly useful in slow water water during the winter.

How to Fish

The fly should be presented sub-surface, but still within the top foot or so of water. Use a wet-fly swing presentation. The fly should move very slowly. Takes are often subtle.
