Tying the Pheasant Tail Midge Pupa

I can’t recall where I first came across this simple pattern, but it has been very effective for selective fish feeding on midge pupa in the surface film. I grease the cdc wing and the fly hangs in the film. It is perfect for the start of a midge hatch when the rise forms are barely visible- just small dimples on the water’s surface. In my neck of the woods I fish it in sizes 18-22

This is a straight forward czech nymph tying sequence, nothing earth shattering. Weight and body taper are formed by lead tape. The color combination on this pattern has been particularly effective. This pattern can also be tied with a tungsten bead. Tie in sizes 10-16.

Lance Egan’s Rainbow Warrior is an effective, easy to tie nymph pattern. It is especially effective on tailwater fisheries. We have had huge success with this pattern over the last two years. Typically it is fished as the dropper in a two-fly nymph rig. Tie in size 14-22. The fly can be tied with a glass bead or a tungsten bead.
