So simple and ive had A LOT of luck when the fish are actually rising and not just sipping emergers. I really want to tie some in 24 just for arguments sake and see what I can come up with.
Yes, I tie them in larger sizes than the actual fly it mimics. My intent is that the bigger fly pierces the water film better and sits better in the surface than a small fly. Also; it tends to maintain a better posture with action. Plus; I think it sticks out a little more to fish in fast water.

I Like the bunny midge pattern. Thank you for sharing!
Just my style; slim and functional...!

  • BTW; mayflies are starting to release on the upper end lately. Good colors are olive with dark split case.
