    suspending midge

    Great pattern for sipping fish. The fly hangs about an inch under the surface if you grease the indicator yarn attached to the mono. I saw this idea in a fly fishing mag and though it looked pretty good. The mono is tied on before the fly is started, and you tie a bit of indicator yarn to the mono with 2 overhand knots or whatever works for you. I like it about 1-2inches above the fly, but u could do longer than that if needed.

    Zen I was digging through the archives looking for some ideas for this summer. This is great. I'll let you know how it does.

    When the Owyhee comes back into it's original shape after this springs flood, this is often the fly that breaks a late morning drought. Excellent tie!
