It’s Time to Break Out the Small Stuff!

The Top Secret Midge is one of my go-to patterns for the winter months. I would strongly recommend carrying this proven pattern in sizes 22-26. It fishes best as the dropper in a two or three fly tandem rig. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have over the years!
