Eric's Midge Fly Tying DirectionsThe Eric’s Midge is a great midge and midge cluster fly pattern.  The Eric’s Midge incorporates high floating foam and high vis material in combination.  The Eric’s Midge can be tied in many colors, although the black foam back and grey/tan variations are the most popular.  This is a fairly easy midge dry fly to tie and still very effective.  Similar to the Griffith’s Gnat, the Eric’s Midge is a must have in any western trout fly box!
