How to Tie a Tube Midge Fly: Video

Not very often is fly tying easy, but this pattern sure does make it so. With a simple pattern like the Tube Midge, you can whip out a dozen flies in various colors and be ready to fool picky trout.

This is a great pattern through the winter when tied in the smallest of sizes. Get it deep into a hole with some weight or fish it in a tandem rig to help it reach the bottom.

Make sure to watch your indicator carefully while fishing this fly. Although it is very effective the takes during the colder months on such a small pattern can be very subtle.

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