Nano Rib Midge

Cheech - February 13, 2020

This fly really doesn't need much of a write up... If you fish tailwaters or other places that require a very thin profile on a small hook, this is a really cool technique that you can hack for many different flies. If this looks like a basic fly, just watch the video to see the whip finish!
