This little midge fly pattern comes from Tyler Boroff (http://bit.ly/2DB8300). It’s a simple enough pattern and I’ve been tying it with both fluorescent fire orange and fluorescent pink hot spots in the thorax. The fly is finished with a thin coating of UV resin (Bone Dry) and I double up on the thorax to create a more pronounced profile.

This is a good fly for tying into smaller sizes (18-22) and I use a razor blad to trim threads thus avoiding messy tags under the resin. If you don’t have resin to work with, your regular head cement should work well, giving the fly a double coat at the thorax. Take care not to block the eye of the hook with either thread wraps at the head or with your choice of sealing.
