Fly Tying: 2 Strands of Krytal Flash Midge

Here is a simple midge/chironomid pattern, on a size 20 hook, that I tied using two strands of Krystal Flash (peacock color) and a portion of one peacock herl. The thread was 14/0. Simply tie in at the bend of the hook and then tie in two strands of peacock Krsytal Flash. Wrap those two strands forward toward the thorax portion of the fly (final 1/3 to 1/4 of the shank). Tie off the strands and leave two short tag ends, which are forced to the rear by the thread wraps. I then create two additional small tags by tying in a small portion of flash on each side of the thorax. Then the one herl is tied in by the butt and wrapped two times to form the thorax. Finish off a thread head. Simple, flashy…a small dropper that I can get a tippet through the eye of the hook.This a nice beginner’s pattern that is a productive stillwater or stream pattern.
