Banded Midge – Zebra
Destination Pyramid Lake
Fish Species Trout, Bass
Tied to imitate black Chironomids everywhere. The color combinations are outstanding. The silver band adds some weight and contrast but also could imitate an air bubble or some lighter tones of a bomber black midge.
The term “Banded”, coined by Rob Anderson, came from the name of a tag used to mark waterfowl for research. The product is basically a ½ bead used together with a tungsten or brass bead to create contrast in nymphs and midges. Soon after the product became available to us, we were putting it on all kinds of flies. It is an important part of many of our Pyramid nymphs, midges and balanced flies.
