Thinking about tying tiny dry flies, whilst the weather forecast is suggesting heavy snow, is a little odd. However, here is a pattern that works well for those mid-season, picky, smutting fish - oftenn selectively targetting tiny midge larvae and hatching adults. They can be tricky; but get a small, suggestive pattern in or under the surface file can be their undoing. Midge larvae will hang under the surface waiting to hatch and this little quill offering is worth a try:
Hook: Varivas 220BLB #22 and #24
Body: Quill, dyed red / pink
Thread: Sheer 14/0, grey
Wing: CDC plumes
I am just in the middle of shooting some new photos on tying CDC, so watch this space.
