Fly Fishing is the Best! Winter Flies

2628 Views 35 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  Spin Dr.

As much as I love winter and ice fishing. My favorite type of fishing is with the fly rod and a river. I've fished mostly all the seasons but winter. I would like to get into winter fly fishing. I understand it can be very tough the fish are not as active, and they generally go for the small stuff.

I assume midges are the key in winter. One fly i can think of right of the top of my head is a zebra midge.

I would like to know what others think is a good winter fly?

Think small dark colors and tail waters.
