Hotspot Midge Fly

About: I am an avid fly fisherman, and started a fly fishing channel where I tie flies and video myself fishing.

Tying these midges is no easy matter. The material list is small, just two color threads and some flashabou, but they are so small, that I have trouble with my not so good eyes to tie them. Your experiences might vary. However they are great for fishing on the san juan river. I lost a few of them my last trip, so this time I need to tie some more up for fishing.

Hook: Daiichi 1110 - size 28
Thread: Ultra Thread 70 - dark brown and white
Hot Spot: Flashabou - hot pink
