How To Tie The Para Midge: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Para Midge

The Para Midge dry fly is a go to Midge adult in my box. It works great all year round and on a variety of waters. This fly is simple to tie but deadly when fished. The Para Midge is one of my favorites due to its fish ability. With the Klinkhammer style post it allows this fly to be fished high and dry or just under the water surface film where a lot of emerging insects fail to break free and are swallowed up.

  1. Video was nicely done, and a pattern I can use. I’ll probably tie it in smaller sizes, but that’s just the nature of the flies here in North Carolina.

    1. Thanks Kevin!

      This is a great fly to tie in a variety of sizes. We typically tie in larger sizes in the videos to better showcase the fly. I fish this fly down to a size 26 here in Colorado. Hope the North Carolina fish enjoy it!
