    When you finally find that glassy, flat water pool, your heart beats a

    bit faster. You wipe the sweat from your brow and quietly peer over the

    gentle current. You start to see the quiet sips of

    cooly calculated trout feeding on tiny black midges at the surface.

    Energized by your discovery, you tie on a CDC Midge Adult, creep a bit

    closer to the pool, and you make your

    first ever so delicate cast.

    The CDC Midge Adult is a fine

    imitation of a fully hatched midge in its adult life stage. It's tiny,

    but incredibly effective in still waters and situations that require

    finesse, delicacy, and really light terminal tackle. With a puff of

    naturally water-repellent CDC feathers for a wing and a sleek black

    body, this fly floats like a dream and is a dead ringer for the real

    thing. Next time you find yourself on the quiet shores of a favorite

    creek or lake and the midge action is in full swing, the CDC Midge

    Adult should be at the heart of your angling strategy.
    • A classic adult midge pattern that incorporates the naturally water-repellent CDC feather for floatation
    • Midge imitation in the adult life stage
    • Adult midges are active early in the morning and later in the afternoon
    • During the early part of the day, look for midge clusters above slower water
    • In the afternoon and evening, look for egg-laying females at the water's surface
    • Be extremely careful not to disturb fish holding in slow water when fishing an adult midge pattern
    • It is paramount to angling success that you achieve a drag free drift when fly fishing with an adult midge pattern
    • Longer leaders are very useful when fishing adult midge patterns
    • SIZE 20
    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
