Blue Midge

Blue Midge

If we could have only one fly in our winter tail water box it would be The Blue Midge in hook sizes 20-24. When fished on light 5x-7x tippets and in low light conditions the Blue Midge will out fish other Zebra Style Midges 10-1. A simply deadly Colorado Tail Water Pattern!

MC Prince Blue

The MC Prince, a simply deadly Colorado nymph!

The MC Prince, a simply deadly Colorado nymph!

 The MC Prince is a great “point” fly to have on your nymph rig during the summer months. It is a great bug to drop smaller midges and mayflies off.   “Blue” is a great nymph pattern color for fishing in the low light conditions often found during the Winter Months.  These are just a few of hundreds of “guide tied & tested” patterns.

Happy Holidays,
