FLIES I'VE PRESENTED IN SNO-FLY WORLDWIDE SHOWCASE OF MIDGES

BLACK MIDGE



          This fly is made with a very slim detachable body and the wings are burnt from small pieces of plastic. The detachable body is made with a new technique I'm developing. I've contacted a fly fishing magazine and they want me to write an article about this method. First I want to try this type of flies so it won't be published until spring or early summer. I'ts kind of hard to try out a fly when everything outside is frozen. I guess you catch my drift. The hook is a Gamakatsu C12-BM barbless midge hook size #30. Really a wonderful hook! When the article has been published I'll post a description of the technique in this blog.




          Here is a picture of the same fly from above and in my eyes it looks pretty realistic. It's supposed to imitate an adult midge. Hopefully the trout and grayling will like them. Until next post ...

Kind regards,
Mats Olsson
