Tungsten Ruby Midge – Copper Bead
This different version of the Ruby wasn’t the staple midge for the White River, but over the years it has gain popularity because copper beads just work on several flies we use in the Ozark’s. Another great pattern that I use, but learned on the banks of Taneycomo is the Rusty midge. Us locals like to call it “Trusty Rusty” because you can trust this pattern gets it done. So, if you haven’t tried this fly, I would give it try like fishing Ruby midges with copper beads.
