Simple is sometimes imperative if you want to catch trout . For Spring fishing in lakes or deep pools with muddy water bank, midges and larvae in red are probably the most efficient pattern. Red can be made of floss, catgut, synthetic materials, uv resin colored in red or even mylar red strips. Here is my simple version made with super durable body, with vivid reflexes and super easy to tie.
I used a curved hook like Demmon G 602 BL to represent better the anatomic look, slim body and just troutline uv ribbing fiber wrapped tight over white thread. The head is colored with brown marker . This is the fly. Of course, you can wrap the body larger to obtain different look or you can wrap the body over black tying thread to obtain a darker shade. Experimenting is the key to success 🙂
