Grey or Light Blue Dun Midges
This midge is tied with a detachable body on a Gamakatsu C12-BM size #30 barbless midge hook. I've come to love these hooks. As you can see they have a large eye which makes it easier to tie the fly to the leader. For the second midge I chose to go with a cdc for wings instead of a synthetic material.
As you see this midge is more like light blue dun in color (I'm a sucker for light blue dun and I think that the trout are likewise). The picture of the other midge isn't quite true, when it comes to colors, depending on the light. This second one is also tied on the size #30 Gamakatsu midge hook. So the detached body isn't very long. Since I can't try them out now I have to wait for spring to see what the final judges (the trout) think about these midges. Until next post ...
