With nearly 17,000 species of midges crowding our North American waters, the Beadhead Zebra Midge is an amazing generalist pattern that - when fished in several sizes and colors - can be used to effectively match the larva life cycle of almost every midge in we have. With the addition of a dense beadhead, you can fish this pattern close to the bottom of the river where fish prefer to lie instead of drifting over their heads!
