Fly of the Month – Syl’s Midge

Syl Nemes, of soft hackle fame, contributed a pattern for every aquatic insect that completes its life cycle by emerging upward through water. This was Syl’s soft hackle pattern for a midge pupa. This pattern should be ideal for presentation during winter midge activity. It is also easy to tie and uses readily available materials.

  • Hook: Daiichi 1160, or equiv, size 16
  • Thread: Olive 8/0
  • Body: Peacock herl
  • Hackle: Two turns of grey partridge hackle
