How to tie the Green Weenie:
Don’t let the name fool you, the Green Weenie is a mean little bug. This simple larva imitation is quick to tie and quick to put fish in the net. If the standard Mercury and Zebra Midges aren’t working give this little guy a shot. The Krystal flash and Metallic Glass bead add just the right amount of attractant while the thin body offers a perfect profile. This lightweight pattern is perfect as a dropper. Place it behind split shot, a heavy weighted point fly or under most dries. It can be tied in a range of sizes. Larger for caddis larva and smaller for midges. Year round the Green Weenie is a solid choice!
