Black Beauty

This Black Beauty pattern is a general midge imitator pattern and is essential. It is a pattern that can be fished all year and is very effective in the dead of winter as midge pupae are foods for trout and they feast on them all year round. It can be also be fished as an effective dropper.

In streams or rivers, this pattern can be presented in a number of ways the most successful being a cast up stream like a dry fly and then allowing it to dead drift drag free, keep in contact with your line. Alternatively, allow the nymph to sink slowly to the bottom just above the vegetation it often seeks and slowly raise the line on the drift, through the water table to attract attention.

A slight variation on this is to actually tighten up the line or pull the line as your nymph approaches the lie of a fish you are sight fishing, and this will imitate the natural movement of the nymph through the water table. When fishing this pattern in lake allowing the pattern to drift to the bottom above the vegetation and retrieving the nymph in sharper, quicker pulls though the water table will attract attention.

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