It’s The Time of Year to Fish Midges

Pink Midges
Midges tied in... pink?

Winter is a great time to fish midge imitations (Chironomidae), those tiny little bugs that I need 3X reading glasses to have a chance of threading onto my leader. Fishing with midges is a current topic on several websites right now.

MidCurrent has a good overview of fly fishing with midges.

Harry Murray has a new podcast about fly fishing with midges.

TroutU has a little guide about fly fishing with midges.

If you are on Facebook, a guy named Greg Faught (search on Facebook to find him) from New Mexico has some great photos of midges he ties, including some funky colors like the pink ones shown here.

Tie one on. Buy some new glasses for 2011. And get out there.
