Hot Zebra Midge – Curtis Fry

It can be tough to keep things skinny while tying midges, but Curtis shows us how to do it. You could even drop the size of your thread down to keep things even skinnier if you need it on smaller sized flies. Personally, I don’t like using a round wire on these, so I would swap the wire for a mylar tinsel. I might also put on a bit smaller bead so I don’t need to put a lot of thread behind the bead. The flash wing isn’t something I normally use on my zebra midges, but I think it is a nice touch and will start adding it from here on in.

Desperate Dan Buzzer – Dave Downie

This is a simple and nice looking English style buzzer pattern. I would be apt to add a bit weight to the head, but it all depends on how you plan to fish it. With the red holographic tinsel, this could easily pass for a bloodworm or a Chironomid, just change the depth that you plan to fish it and viola.
