Now on Firhole Sticks brand barbless competition hooks. Stupid sharp, super strong.
Many western rivers see a large fluvial black midge hatch that occurs in the late winter and early spring affectionately dubbed the MIDGEZILLA or the Goliath Midge hatch. This hatch occurs at a time when fishes metabolisms are starting to energize and the trout are very hungry. What is special about this hatch is it is a rather large midge offering the dry fly angler the first opportunity to fish with some reliable surface action. What could be more fun, cold numb fingers and dry flys?
I have designed this emerger to float IN the surface film with buzzing wings as the midge is in the last and final throes to airborne freedom.
The bright orange hot spot on top alerts you and not the fish.
