Zebra midge

Although an extremely simple tie, the Zebra midge is an essential pattern to have in your box all year round. Tie it in all hook sizes from a 12 to a 20 and in any colour you fancy, be it a traditional black, or go all out, and do some in super vivid attractor colours, you won’t be disappointed!

One thought on “Zebra midge

  1. The Ol’ Zebra Midge is indeed a very simple pattern but I still managed to learn something from your video. I normally don’t put a peacock collar on mine but when I do I certainly had not been taking care to orient the herl exactly the way that you do. I can also apply your technique to quite a few other patterns that have peacock collars as well.
