Bling Midge

Cheech - November, 2021

The Bling Midge is a GREAT little fly that has a really good midgey profile while keeping the materials to a minimum.  There are many names for this style of fly, but all you need is some thick thread and the right amount of twist to get it to work.  The famous "Yong Special" or "Yong Flasher" is very similar to this bug and is done with Coats & Clark sewing thread.  Tie some up in different sizes and colors to match your local waters, or buy  them on our WEBSITE...
