Description

Matt McCannel’s Massacre Midge is the ultimate guide fly. It doubles up as both as Midge and Baetis emerger. Whether you are fishing in the summer or winter, this is a must-have fly for your box.  Midge feeders eat this fly with confidence! We recommend fishing mid column during the height of a mid emergence. Vary the size based on the prevailing hatches. If fish are dialed in on the Baetis hatch increase your odds by using other Baetis nymph patterns. We recommend the following: Sparkle Wing RS2, Juan’s Slim Shady Baetis, and Chocolate Foam Wing Emergers.

Fishing Strategies:

The Massacre Midge fishes well under a wide range of conditions, regardless of the season.  We fish it 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, Mercury Brassies, 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.
