Here in Utah we have had a very warm winter. I have never caught a fish on a dry fly in February until this year. I have had some real fun and success with midge dry fly patterns the past couple of weeks. I really like this pattern. I have tied it without the peacock and with a backwing of flashabou and black body as well. The white post makes this easy to see in a size 18 or 20 or smaller pattern. The Hanging Midge fly pattern will catch you fish if there are any midge dry flies about.
