Jeff's Fab Five Midge Pupa Patterns
Jeff's Fab Five pupa patterns. These flies incorporate the four principles outlined in part 1 of this article.
n my last article, I discussed four important factors that tiers must consider when imitating midge pupae: shape, thickness, flash, and color. Now I want to open my fly box and show you my five most reliable patterns.
While I fish about twenty different patterns for midges, these five are what I most often tie my tippet to. Of course, I carry these in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and styles so I can cope with the cornucopia of "midging" conditions.
Detailed directions for each fly are on separate pages. Click the links below.
