Midge Emerger on a Kernel of Corn

No, I didn’t attempt to photograph this Midge Emerger setting atop a kernel of corn. But, for the uninitiated to fly tying, hook/pattern size it is helpful to imagine that kernel of unpopped corn and imagine the pattern in the picture as roughly the same size…or a little longer and fatter than a piece of cooked rice. The curved, light wired, pupa hook affords a slightly wider hook gape to hopefully facilitate the hook up with such small flies. Annoying to tie, necessary to have.
