Blood Midge

Blood Midge Trout Fly

This Blood Midge pattern imitates the pupae of various Chironomids. Chironomids are an essential part of the trout food chain and they are present in most if not all, bodies of water.   This Blood Midge pattern’s segmentation and curve is a natural imitator. This pattern can be fished all year.

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.
