    Very nice small midge, looks like what you would find on Darth Vaders or a SWAT team's vest, the fish should just surrender and jump in the net! I just got in from the Clinch tonight, jumped in at the Church after I saw they were doing a single late afternoon release. I carry my gear like Batman in the trunk so left work at 5:45, in the river at 6:15 and knew I had about 30 minutes to try some flys I had been wanting to try on a rising current. Talked to one gentleman leaving as I was jumping in and said he hit his limit using BWO's, better than me I just threw some things till I could not see and was backed up to the rocks. No complaints though, summer temps, fall leaves in the background, not a bad way to end a Wednesday night.

    CV; a good substitue for v-rib is ordinary fishing line.

    • To color it; I use permanent markers. However; I usually leave it transparent and use an appropriate thread color.
    • #8 test fishing line seems to be a nice size for wrapping. I like to use some pliers and crimp/flatten the tie in point so it does not create a bump. Also; it is imperative to keep steady tension on the wrap or it will unravel on you going up the shank.
    • Once wrapped; I coat with some cement and it works great. The only negative is that your end-color tends to be 2-3 shades darker than you started with due to the cement penetrating the wraps of the fishing line. With that in mind; I tend to start with brighter colors of thread.

    Very nice! That is what being on the river is all about!

    Try Stretch Magic in .5mm sold at Hobby Lobby in the area where bracelet stuff is sold. It is round and very stretchy, but only comes in clear.
