Winter means that Midge patterns are king. Josh Williams is the creator of this pattern. What we like about this pattern is its simplicity, effectiveness, and it is just a flat out versatile pattern. Originally this pattern is tied in purple, pink, and orange. We like this pattern in black and olive as well. This pattern is tied in sizes 14-20 and because of the material for the wing is easier to see. Make sure you have a variety of sizes and colors of this pattern in your box during the winter season.
