Mercury Midge – Glass Bead Midge

This is one of the best flies to begin a tying career. These flies are simple to tie. Tying a glass bead midge teaches how to wrap thread and how to rib a body. Probably the best reason for tying this pattern is, that despite being so simple to tie, it catches loads of fish. For the waters I regularly fish, it makes more sense to tie a few dozen of these rather than tying a box full of wooly buggers.

Vary the thread colors to include black, olive, and red bodies. The availability of wire and thread colors makes for endless color combinations.

Originated by Pat Dorsey.
