Tim Flagler begins to tie the Ginny Midge with a Dai-Riki #125 size 24 emerger hook. Plunger-style hackle pliers make handling such tiny hooks much easier.
The twist in the wing material, notes Flagler, “gives it a good bit of dimension, and a more natural look. And that’s the Ginny Midge. They’re great for those times when you need to either go small, or go home.”
