New Product Review by Jay Nicholas – Midge Flash

OK. Just because a material is new to me does not necessarily meant that it is NEW on the market or new to everyone.Ive known that Midge Flash has been around for some time, I tried it and was not particularly enthused with it so I let it lay.

Not until now. A recent dive into the currently available flash products has been driven by my desire to tie something fresh and new in 2018, and I randomly stumbled across Midge Flash.

Impressed? YES.

I’m now convinced that the Midge Flash I see today is different in some respect from the Midge Flash I saw and was not impressed with several years go.

Why? Don’t know.

Perhaps different dyes are being used, different base materials, or different dye temperatures or processes. For whatever the reason the Midge Flash I have on my desk right now is super good looking and I’ll be incorporating it into my steelhead, salmon, and trout flies very shortly.
