Ruby Midge
Printable Version

The Ruby Midge is a killer pattern on most tailwaters. The River Run Fly Shop in Branson, Missouri introduced me to the pattern several years ago. It was first fished on Lake Taneycomo and then on other tailwaters. Each time the Ruby Midge has that it is a must in your fly box when fishing tailwaters.
