Mayhem Midge
Printable Version

The Mayhem is commonly used a nymph or an emerger. Use it in the surface film where all the great frenzied action takes place or sink it as a nymph or dropper. Although called a midge, it is great for mayfly patterns. It can be tied in various colors, but olive and black seem to be the best.
