MP's Tucker Midge

Tucker Midges in size #12 and size #20

Brought on by the inspiration of the first annual Pet Fly Smackdown; Rumble in Iowa 3003! Knowing this would be a winter competition, and possibly needing something different than the standby "Tucker Nymph", I developed this pattern considering the success of Brennon's "Black Nymph of Trout Death" and the fact that midges are likely to be the only thing active and hatching this time of year. As of this time untested, but sure to catch a lot of trout, especially when they're keyed in on the midges!

Hook - Standard Nymph HOok
Thread - 8/0 black
Tail - Single Strand of deep purple Flashabou
Body - Thread
Thorax - Gray Underfur from a cat (Tucker)
Wingpad - Single Strand of deep purple Flashabou
