Bling Midge

$2.25

The Bling Midge is a great option to imitate midge larva on tailwaters, especially in the winter. Sometimes less is more, and the smaller the better.  It is a great midge larva and midge pupa attractor when trout are keying in on midges.  The Bling Midge is an excellent attractor in a multi-fly nymphing rig trailing other very small midges behind it.  The fly itself has a very thin profile with a little flash in the thorax to act as a trigger.  Sometimes it only takes a little extra flash to get the fish moving even in the dead of winter.  The Bling Midge is one of the smallest midge patterns that we offer at Tailwater Junkie.  Try some today!

Fishing Strategies:

The Bling Midge fishes well under a wide range of conditions, regardless of the season.  We fish the Minute Midge in a tandem nymphing rig as a lead fly, trailing one or two other midge imitations (larva or pupa) off it.  Droppers of choice include Black Beauties, Top Secret Midges or Manhattan Midges. Observation is key when trying to match the hatch.  Look at the size of the adults and match the pupa accordingly.  The Bling Midge is a must-have winter midge pattern for tailwater enthusiasts!
