Winter Fishing = Small Flies & Midges

Winter fishing here in Colorado means fishing small flies, mostly midges in the 20-26 range. No surprise that a lot of inventive midge patterns were developed on Colorado Rivers such as the South Platte.

This is an excerpt of my arsenal of midges and small flies:


  1. Those are spectacular! I esp. like the RS2 variations and the blue ribbed thing - what do you call that one? :)

    Thanks for sharing! I love them all!

  2. Hi Owl - thanks! The blue thingy is something that "just happened" when I was playing around with stuff on my tying desk. I think I got inspired by Charlie Craven's Blue Poison Tung.
