How to tie The Maholo Midge

“Named for the Holographic tinsel this fly features as a body wrap, the Maholo midge created by Umpqua Feather Merchants Rob Anderson is an excellent play on the Hawaiian word for appreciation or gratitude. “Mahalo ” because it catches hungry trout. Simple but deadly, the Maholo Midge is an efficient use of your time behind the vise. It is designed to be tied and fished in larger sizes as a Chironomid for stillwater trout but can easily be adapted to imitate a variety of midge larvae. Fish this fly shallow under an indicator in the early season or deeper under a sinking line to reach the big boys in the depth during the summer months. Either way it is an effective fly you will want in your box.”
