SlabSeeker Modern Midges has to be the best midge book out there. I fish midges year round, dropping them off most summertime dry rigs. Never ceases to amaze me how many big fish will let the dry drift by but will slam that #22 (or smaller) sunken midge trailer. Staple of a trouts diet and that's no joke. Good ties as well fellas.

Take a look at Modern Midges

Its a pretty cool book to see all the different variations of midges people tie. Some are redundant, yes, but I pick and choose elements from some flies and incorporate them together. Also some nice info in the back on how to fish midges and chiros in rivers and stillwater.

fcollinscatcher Oh yeah, I have his basic book as well as Charlies fly box book - both are great

Oyey Ft. Collins, have you read Charlie's Basic Fly Tying?

fcollinscatcher I picked up Pat Dorsey's latest book on fly patterns for CO. It is an extremely helpful tool for specific patterns and why/how/when to fish them, I would definitely recommend it.


Working on some buggy cross breeds of the copper john/grhe/pt, frenchies, mop n glo's and juju emergers/rs2.

My buddy caught a couple in the 18"+ range, I caught a few browns in the 16" range. Crowds weren't an issue at all and I was surprised to see a fair amount of BWO's coming off with fish charging the surface after them even with the sunny conditions.

Wish I would have moved a bit more but there is wayyy too much water to cover in that area in 1 month, let alone 1 day.

Mine were taken on rs2/juju emergers patterns, threw on a steamer for about 20 minutes and turned some heads and missed a couple takes...in hindsight I wish I would have stuck with it longer because it is so much easier to cover water effectively and move on to the next likely holding area.

It definitely got me excited to be back on the vice!

Going to be fishing around Basalt this weekend, my goal is to whip up a bunch of baetis/midge imitations as well as a smaller streamer or two.
