Soft Hackle Midge Emerger — $2.50

In designing this fly, Craig set out to tie a midge emerger which would work on the ultra-selective fish sipping late season midges on rivers like the Henry’s Fork, Lewis, and Firehole at Muleshoe Bend, lower Slough and Iron Spring Creeks and other smooth waters where big trout selectively taking emerging midge pupae have proved next to impossible to fool. This one is simply, without question or doubt, deadly…..period! It, like so many effective patterns, looks like nothing much to our eyes, but to the fish it is simply irresistible. Size 20.
