The current how-to video from Tightline Productions, Tim Flagler reveals you how to connect a reliable midge-larva replica that looks terrific in the vise and even much better in the water. As normal, Tim has actually created an ingeniously easy approach for getting the fly to look ideal. By cording up the called thread, he develops a definitely segmented body that permits the thread color to bleed through. If you intend on fishing midget patterns this winter season, twist up a few of these and provide a shot.
