Post The "Jim-E" Midge [STM] Link

The "Jim-E" Midge

For those that are interested;

Here is a link to (Southern Trout Magazine) displaying one of my favorite midges on the Clinch River.

It is called the "Jim-E" midge and I named it after my father. Well; the technique of juxtaposing BR wire next to X-Small wire and leaving a small gap of thread. Plus; adding the wing buds/gills. Another excellent material for the gills is Grey Neer Hair.

I hope you enjoy!

Sorry for the photos not being as detailed. I have built a shadow box and I hope it will help with taking better macro shots.
