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.

The Peacock Humpy
The Humpy, most commonly tied in the Yellow Humpy variation is seemingly a less popular fly in modern days. For me, this is a pattern that should be in every angler’s summer dry box. Not only does it float high, even in the most turbulent water but it keeps its buoyancy fish after fish! Tying these bad boys does take some practice. Watching the elegant dry fly slurps from hungry trout makes it all worth it.
