Griffiths Gnat Emerger

Griffith's Gnat Emerger
Printable Version

“The Griffith’s Gnat Emerger is another wonderful pattern from the good folks out at Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone, Montana. It may look more complex than a standard Griffith’s Gnat but I actually find it easier to tie. I really like how it can be skittered on the water’s surface to imitate a midge natural."
