Tubing Midge

The Easiest Fly in the World




When it comes to fly tying, it's always a bonus to have a few flies in your arsenal that are both super effective, and easy to tie.  The tubing midge is probably the easiest fly in the world to tie, and it looks a bit more realistic than a good old Zebra Midge.  For me, the best part of this fly is that there are tons of different colors so you can get a really good match for your local bugs.  Another cool technique that isn't shown on this video is that you can use different colors of thread and see through colors of tubing to give it a cool effect.   Check out the colors of Micro Tubing here.  You can also use this tubing technique to make several other types of flies like caddis pupae, mayfly nymphs, and chironomids.
