White Tail Midge

White Tail Midge
Printable Version

The White Tail Midge is a creation of Davy Wooton, White River Guide, fly tier and lecture. This is one of Davy's go-to flies on the White River, but is successful any where midges are fished. The pattern is also tied in black. This version deviates slightly from the original pattern, but is just as effective.
