How to Tie a Disco Midge Fly: Video

The Disco Midge, aptly named for its bright and flashy color is a great attractor midge pattern.

This is a great fly to have in your box for many different occasions. Keep sizes 20 – 24 for those tough winter days on tailwaters. Or don’t be afraid to also have some larger variations ready to go for those stillwater days.

I like to fish my river rigs with this fly on a point close to the bottom with a larger dropper fly as my weight. It has a great ability to move picky trout!

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