Parasol Zebra Midge Fly Tying Video

A funny little pattern I discoverer on the web while researching Midge patterns. While at first appearance it seems to be a lot of work to tie, and prone to fouling, nothing could be farther from the truth. Whip out the parasols at one time, and then sit down at the bench to tie. It is important to note that no matter what material you use for the parasol, it must have a floatant applied if you are not using a material like Hareline’s Parapost. Para post has Hareline’s Water shed Treatment.
