What The Trout Really Wants - Easy Pickings

The Stuck Shuck Midge

          I watched a video clip on youtube where Hans Weilenmann was tying this particular pattern. I liked it from the beginning and finally decided to make a few. What could be more enticing to a trout than a midge hopelessly stuck in the surface film of the water? I must confess that I didn't follow the instructions on the video totally but almost. I like the looks of this pattern and it can be adapted to any color of midges hatching in your waters.

          Here is the link to the video clip that inspired me to tie this particular pattern. A very instructive and understandable video tutorial. Furthermore since I really believe in this pattern I'm going to give it an honest chance to show what the trout thinks of it. Soo until the next post ...

Great pattern. His videos are always great. I like the schuck (flash) you used instead of woodcock for the tail.

Hi Nate!

Thanks! I like this pattern so I'll probably make some that has the colors of the midge hatches around here.
