One thought on “Ultra midge pupa fly

  1. This is indeed a very effective midge larva pattern. I know it as one called Ian’s Brass Ass, developed by Ian Colin James. I tie it in many colors, like you mentioned, and also find that Green and Red UTC Ultra Wire are often the most effective. UTC Holographic Tinsel comes in many of the same colors and that is what I typically use for the “cheeks”. I must say, though, that your technique of running the wire into the hook eye before wrapping it with your rotary vise is extremely efficient! Well done!
