    It’s a sad truth: many of the world’s midge fly patterns look the same,

    leaving many of the world’s fly anglers to ignore the importance of

    these small, wormy creatures. Trout love midges and depend on them for

    survival, so the mighty midge should most certainly not be considered

    too boring to be useful.

    Leave it to professional fly tyer and

    fly fishing junkie, Mike Mercer, to inject his signature creativity

    into the world of midges.

    Mercer’s Midgeling really d'es stand

    out among the crowd of standard midge imitations available to a fly

    angler today. Mercer’s take on the simple, wormlike midge larva is

    packed with an attractive iridescence through its slightly tapered body

    and a buggy set of contrasting forelegs. The fly is neatly topped by a

    glass bead with soft lines and a realistic translucence that will

    surely fool the wiliest trout in the hole.
    • Creative fly tyer, Mike Mercer’s best midge imitation to date
    • Creative and elegant use of materials to spice up a simple midge imitation
    • Midge imitation in the mature larval life stage
    • Fishes effectively in all types of trout water
    • Dead drift through slower water and eddies
    • Faster riffles and current seams can also be great spots to dead drift a midge larva pattern
    • Midges are often most effectively fished when attached as a dropper to a larger nymph or when fished just below the water’s surface with a large dry fly as a strike indicator
    • Because of the common and widespread nature of midge species, trout anglers ought to keep a wide selection of midge fly patterns in their fly boxes
    • 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.
