Default Re: What's your favorite midge dryfly patterns?

Try fishing very small soft hackled wets (unweighted) is sz's 16-20. Olive thread, #20 wet or dry fly hook and a small, appropriately sized starling hackle will suffice for an olive midge emerger. Fish down and across with very short strips or: fish up, deaddrift, drop the rod tip for a spell, then slowy lift the tip back up on the final swing portion of the drift with-in 10 ft. of feeding fish; repeat. FISH ON!
