TROUTS TIES // How to Tie the Demon Midge Variant with Eric Schmidt

Ivan Orsic / Feb 22, 2022

In the most recent episode of Five Flies, Landon & Tanner agreed that when it comes to fishing midges in the late winter - RED - is a great color to put in rotation. Enter the DEMON MIDGE.

Trouts own Eric Schmidt swung by the studio to tie a variant of Matt McCannell's Demon Midge - an excellent option if you're looking to put a couple more fish in the net this time of year. Developed with the picky trout of the Uncompahgre River in mind, the Demon Midge has all the elements a small midge needs to fool a wary trout into having a bite - Flash, Color, and Profile.

In Schmidt's variation, he makes a couple of changes to the ingredients including a shorter shank hook, a tungsten bead, and black thread serving as the rib.

INGREDIENT LIST

Hook: U202 Red Size 16-22
Bead: Black Tungsten size 2.8- 1.5mm
Thread: UTC 70D Red
Body: Veevus Quill Body Fuchsia
Rib: UTC Ultra 70D or Extra Small Black Wire
