How to Tie a Smokejumper Midge
The Smokejumper midge is an excellent fly pattern that can fool even the more selective trout. It is tied with CDC which is an excellent material that stays dry without any floatant. The CDC parachute on top of this midge pattern keeps the fly near the top or on top of the water column which helps the fly appear to be in the emergence phase. The trout love eating emergers and a natural material like CDC creates a very nice presentation. Try a few of these patterns on selective tailwaters and see the results for yourself.
