JuJubee Midge Pattern – Fly Tying

The Jujubee Midge is one of the most realistic fly tying patterns. The segmented body is the key to this successful fly pattern.  Commonly this is tied as a red midge pattern, and I would say this is one of my top red midge patterns for Colorado.  It doesn’t have to be tied in red however, and a variety of colors such as blue, olive, black, grey and more will work extremely well also.  Red midge patterns do very well in Colorado though and you should definitely tie up a few to have in your box.
