The Griffiths Gnat, one of the few dry fly patterns out there that you can have the utmost confidence in during the winter months. An imitation that will work as a midge cluster when tied in larger sizes or as an individual midge when tied in the smallest of sizes. This is a great pattern to throw by itself if you have rising fish to a midge hatch (using the high vis version helps greatly when trying to spot your fly), or in tandem following a larger dry fly in the warmer months.
Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers
