How to Tie a Top Secret Midge

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: ” Rusty brown Super Fine dubbing is used for the thorax of the fly. The teeniest of wisps is all you need. Build a very short slender dubbing noodle on your tying thread and then take wraps with it to create a small, somewhat football shaped thorax. When you’re done, complete a 3 or 4 turn whip finish, seat the knot really well and then snip or cut your tying thread free.

The final step is to trim the wing to about the same length as the thorax. Make sure to save the unused wing material in a safe place for tying the next fly.”
