Fly Tying: Griffith Gnat (Small, Palmered Midge)

A collage of Griffith Gnats that shows the typical pattern formation.

“The pattern is simple enough for the beginning tier: a size 16-18 fine wire hook; peacock herl, grizzly hackle suitable for a size 18 dry fly and 8/0 or 14/0 thread. The peacock and hackle stem are tied in at the rear and the peacock body is wrapped forward forming a full body and tied off. Then the hackle is palmered forward in wraps similar to a Woolly Worm/Woolly Bugger’s body formation; maybe a little closer wraps. The remaining hackle is clipped off and the thread head is formed. Use a floating line and keep the faith as you fish it in the film, amid the hatch. Don’t horse the fish. ”  (SB 7-14-2009)    

Yes, a scaled down version of a Woolly Worm, with a simple peacock herl body and a palmered, dry fly quality hackle (the hackle barbs should be equal to or only slightly greater than the width of the hook gape. The pattern makes for a very simple tie and a productive midge ‘cluster’ pattern for lakes or streams.

Fly Tying: Parachute Pheasant Tail Dry (Uni-‘Floats’)

This is a YouTube vid by Nate on how to tie a Parachute Pheasant Tail Dry Fly ‘hopper’ that incorporates plenty of dubbing, natural pheasant tail fibers and a ‘Uni-Bobber’ or as FishKamp suggests ‘Uni-Floats’. The PT Hopper would lend itself to several color possibilities. A ‘buggy’ pattern with the help of some Gordons.
