How To Tie The Medallion Midge: Fly Tying Video

Yet another solid pattern from the mind of Pat Dorsey, the Medallion Midge is a go to winter time midge pupa imitation. Similar to the Top Secret Midge, this pattern features a brown body with a white ribbing followed by a rust or brown colored thorax. The real difference is the wing buds and how they are imitated. On this pattern like the name suggests, it utilizes the medallion sheeting material to mimic the wing buds of an emerging midge. I like to fish this pattern deep utilizing some weight or another weighted fly to help get it down fast.
