Super Stretch Midge Larva
Curtis, March 2023
If you like to fish bloodworms or midge larva on lakes or rivers, this is a great pattern to have in your box. In addition to the new Umpqua XC 240 barbless hooks, the new Hareline Midge Stretch Rib is the star of this pattern. It's a great way to add a ribbed or segmented look to your flies but it doesn't add a lot of bulk. You can tie this in a variety of sizes and tack on a tungsten bead if you need it to get down fast. Great pattern for fish feeding closer to the bottom of a lake or river. I'd recommend tying it in red, tan and green. Those are all great chironomid or midge larva colors.
