Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

As Tim Flagler says, “The Zebra Midge is one of those patterns that really doesn’t need an introduction.  It’s simple, effective, and works over a wide range of fishing situations.”

    Just starting out with tying and I was wondering if you have the time to make a list of the basic hook styles and sizes to outfit my new bench. I keep buying what was in my “Beginners kit” and now have a bunch of over size nymphs.
    Something along the lines of “Nymph hooks size _ to _ and I preferr Dai Riki # ___
    Something simple for basic trout patterns.. Thanks in advance, love your vids, and learn TONS from them

      I would do this: Visit a reputable site that sells the fly pattern you want to tie and see the sizes they offer that fly in to get an idea for good sizes. Search the web for hook equivalent charts and you are all set. Take good notes though. I’m still “newer” and it’s easy to get lost in the web on rabbit trails! You won’t find a “master list” and if you do, please point me at it. Look for sites with tons of pattern recipes and start there. It’ll take you time but tie only what “should” work for the fish you’re targeting and look for patterns that mimic “many” flies to get you going.
