Sprout Midge Emerger Pattern

Sprout Midge Emerger Pattern

During the winter and colder months Midge patterns are key, and the Sprout Midge is easily one of the most popular Midge Patterns on the market today.  There are different variations to this pattern, and most just use thread as the body.  We love how the Hends and Veevus Body Quills work on smaller patterns.  This material doesn't build up bulk and is perfect for tying in smaller patterns.  This is a parachute emerger pattern that hangs just below the surface film using the parachute to suspend the fly in the surface film imitating an emerging insect.  Emerging insects are highly vulnerable making them an easy target.
