This ridiculous looking fly has saved my day several times, from Rapid Creek to the Bighorn River. This is a fly that I'll tie on after trying more conventional flies, and it's often surprising how many fish will move for this fly that ignored other patterns. The Pinkie Midge is especially productive in the colder water months, but can be productive all year round! Tie in sizes 14-22.
