    This classic fly

    pattern imitates an emergent or adult midge or midge cluster and can

    bring huge returns for the prepared angler. The fly was invented by

    American fly fishing legend and founder of Trout Unlimited, George A.

    Griffith, who chose a simple design and common fly tying materials to

    produce one of the world's most effective dry flies.

    Tested on

    Griffith's storied home water and proven along the banks of rivers and

    streams, large and small, far and wide, the Hi-Vis Griffith's Gnat is

    the most effective adult midge pattern ever tied for fishing in low

    light conditions and faster water, period. This simple, but highly

    visible fly pattern is constructed of three ingredients: peacock herl,

    grizzly hackle, and a bright tuft of Antron dubbing. It's unique mix of

    buggy, leggy, and iridescent qualities make it a midge imitation

    feeding fish simply can't resist!
    • Wickedly effective fly pattern developed by Trout Unlimited founder, George A. Griffitth, designed with anglers' visibility in mind
    • Known for its simple design and use of common materials
    • Highly visible midge imitation in the emerger or 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
    • Use this highly visible adult midge imitation when light conditions or water clarity are low
    • Excellent imitation of an egg-laying female midge caught in the faster water of the main current
    • SIZE 18
    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.
