Tungsten “Trusty” Rusty Midge


The word “trusty” for this midge is dead on! This fly flat gets it done fishing Taneycomo, but it has been very effective on the White River, and I don’t think a lot of people know about this fly yet. I believe in it so well that I put it on the best hook when fishing midges. It’s called TMC 2499SPBL which stands for super point barbless. The hook has more of a open gap and a hook point that doesn’t miss fish. It is also barbless so ready to go in the catch and release areas on the White and Norfork.It comes in both size 16 and 18 which are the one’s I fished the most. I do have it in a size 14, but not on the 2499, but on a scud hook with a down eye.
