Features of the Blood Midge
The Blood Midge Fly like many other species of midge species exhibits a red coloration in their larval stage.
This fly is useful in both river and lake environments since midges are usually the most prolific insects available to trout.
This fly can be fished in its larger sizes where chironomids are found or in any stream where midges are an important trout food.
It excels in some of the larger tailwaters of the West like the Green, San Juan, and Big Horn.
