Some micro fly fun with sulky holoshimmer. Thanks to the Winona Fly Factory for renewing my interest in the holoshimmer, an excellent material for small nymph bodies on caddis and midge patterns alike. Of course, his midge patterns kick my ass. Nice work there brother!
I better get to tying up a bunch of midge patterns if I plan on hanging out on the river with WFF and Wendy Berrell next month. Those guys will school this roughfisher; they've been out a few times already this winter and I haven't touched a fly rod since November.
