This Black Gnat pattern imitates an emergent or adult midge. "Midges" or Gnat’s are found in almost every aquatic ecosystem and are abundant in many varieties throughout the world. They are typically active early in the morning and late afternoon in to early evening. In the early part of the day midge clusters will move above slower water congregate in large swarms. Toward late afternoon and in the early part of the evening this pattern will give you an excellent imitation of females laying their eggs in faster currents.

This is a simple yet effective pattern and has proven to be one of the most effective patterns worldwide. A range of smaller hook sizes is recommended for this pattern. The manner in which this pattern is tied increases natural buoyancy allowing this pattern to be fished in choppy and calm waters. When fishing on calmer, slower bodies of water, a longer leader is recommended. Present the fly way in front of your lie, high on the run, allowing a longer, slower drift. A drag free drift is essential. In choppier water, fish this pattern up or across stream taking in your line as the fly moves down the run follow the fly with your rod tip.

When fishing any dry fly pattern, matching the color and the size to the hatch are critical, with presentation being the finishing touch to this trinity. Often overlooked is the casting of shadow from your leader, which may lead to spooked fish.   We suggest selecting a high float leader. Additional waterproofing can be given to you fly delaying it becoming waterlogged, by applying a flotant product such as Gink ®.

All flies are tied with American sourced materials including Hareline Dubbin Materials and Whiting Farm's Hackles & Capes and are tied on premium hooks.
