Learn to tie the Rojo Midge. Original pattern by Greg Garcia. This is an extremely effective midge pattern. On our local tailwater where fish can be picky, this fly fools even the wariest fish. We have had great luck tying this fly with purple, olive, tan, and red bodies. To change the color of the fly simply change the color of your tying thread.

This is an awesome dropper pattern, especially for pickier tailwater fish. The original 3 Dollar Dip works great, but the Body Glass gives it some added durability and translucence. Brown seems to work as good as anything else, but Body Glass comes in a ton of colors, so don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit!
The Cheesman Canyon Emerger is a fantastic fly for picky tailwater trout, as well as during the first part of a BWO hatch. Great as a dropper behind a larger nymph or below a dry as an emerger.
If you’re headed to the North Platte River near Casper, Wyoming this is a fly you definitely don’t want to be without! Brown, Gray, and Black have all been fantastic colors for us. Easy tie that catches fish!
