GREY MIDGE WITH CDC WING
Grey Midge with a slim detached body and CDC Wing tied on a TMC 2488 size #26. Used CDC to the wing trying to imitate the fluttering of the wings of recently hatched midges drying their wings. A little wind and the wing will seem to be alive ( I hope ).
This picture shows that the wing is quite dense and made up of a lot of CDC fibers. I think that will make the fly all the more irresistible for the trout and grayling. Just a more or less educated guess until I get the chance to actually test it. Next comes a lovely video clip of a hatching midge (Chironomid). I found it quite interesting and want to share it with anyone that takes the time to look at my blog. Enjoy!!!
After seeing that video clip I naturally had to make a red midge. Since the hatching midge was moving the wings very fast I chose CDC as wing material just like the midge imitation shown above. So I came up with this one.
This midge is somewhat smaller tied on a Gamakatsu C12-BM barbless hook size #30. Well that kind of concludes this post so until the next one ...
