Hi-Vis Griffith Gnat


The Hi-Vis Griffith Gnat is one of my favorite midge imitations. In larger sizes (sizes 16-18) it fishes well as a midge cluster and in smaller sizes (sizes 20-24) it imitates a single midge. The Hi-Vis Griffith Gnat is perfect for dry-and-dropper rigs, it’s easy to see in harsh glare or in foam, and it works well for as an “indicator fly” when trailing a smaller offering that is hard to see. Tie some up…you’ll be glad you did!
