Synopsis: This classic gives the best treatment on midges-small flies and light tackle-as well as advice on tools and techniques, tackle selection, and fishing tactics. Patterns include the Wet Black Ant, Grizzly Hankle Yellow, and the Little Olive. For dedicated anglers who enjoy the challenge and excitement of fishing with midges.
Review: Some of the smallest aquatic insects figure prominently into the diets of the biggest, most elusive trout; the midge is such an insect. Fishing these tiny flies--whether as nymphs or dries--requires fine tippets and skilled casts. Fishing the Midge was welcomed by a small, dedicated following of midge fly-fishers when it debuted in 1972; since then it has become a classic, and a whole new school of fly-fishing has grown up around it. The revised edition includes updated information for tying and fishing midge (and related) patterns.
