The Ramblings of a Fly Fisherman

The Rojo Midge

The Rojo Midge was created by Greg Garcia. At this point, this is the smallest fly that I have attempted to tie at size 22. I have fished this pattern many times in the past and would add that I have had more luck with it in early spring than during any other time of year.  You can fish it alone, but I have typically used this pattern to follow a more predominant nymph like a prince or stone pattern.  I have also had a lot of success including this as the trailing midge behind a dry or hopper pattern.   In reality, it’s a great fly and one that can be very effective in all kinds of water conditions, especially during those slower days when the trout seem reluctant to bite.
