Midge Tip vs. Indicator Rig

The Ultimate Stillwater Contest!

We get asked a lot what the big deal is with these new midge tip lines for stillwater. And while we're not at all saying they're the end-all be-all for stillwater lines, we definitely see them catching more fish than our (former) favorite indicator rig setup.

So rather than speculate, we decided to come up with a little test on a recent trip. Lance was on midge tip duty and Cheech went with the indicator rig. It wasn't overly serious and this is, by no means, scientific but it's a fun little experiment.

The results were a little surprising....
