The Razor Midge accurately imitates the position of midge pupa in the surface film. It can be tied in a wide range of colors and sizes. The use of Translucent Razor Foam makes a realistic natural appearance.
Materials Needed for the Razor Midge:
70 Denier Ultra Thread
Super Fine Dubbing or Dubbing of your choice
|Start the thread at the center of the hook shank.||Take a matchstick sized piece of razor foam and trim one end to a point. Tie it onto the hook as shown.||Lift up the forward portion of the foam and tie in 4 – 8 strands of midge flash in front of it. This will become the wings of your fly.|
|Dub the hook to just behind the eye. Divide the strands of midge flash so that you have an equal amount of strands on each side of the fly.||Pull the front of the foam over the dubbed head you just formed and tie it down as shown. Whip finish to complete the fly.||The fly is now finished and ready to fish.|
