How to Tie a Poison Tung Fly: Video

Developed by Carlie Craven, this pattern is a great midge imitation. He developed this pattern with a light body, blue ribbing and a grey collar creating a fly that is unique and will fool fish in picky situations. Our variation is a dull version tied with a dark gray body and black ribbing rather than the blue. You can also tie it in various browns and with different tints of blue wire. This is a must for any winter tailwater fishers box.

Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers
