      No Name Midge

      This midge pattern has been in my box for a good 6-8yrs now, and for good reason….it works. Its a very easy pattern to tie with only 3 materials. Aside from your hook, bead & thread, a pinch of dubbing and a single Furnace hackle will tie a dozen or more. The NNM is a comfort fly for me in the winter. Suspended only 18″ below a big dry or indicator when winter fish are midging but won’t take, is it’s niche for me. Yet fished as a trail fly with weight and dead drifted is productive as well. It fishes year-round very effectively…..but for me, it’s a winter pattern.
