The Zebra Midge is one of the most effective midge patterns out there. It is so simple, but still very effective. The Zebra Midge can be tied in many different colors and sizes. The most common colors the Zebra Midge is tied in is red and black.
Zebra Midge – Beadhead Black
Zebra midge, brass bead head, works very well on the Red River, the Rio Grande, Abiquiu, San Juan for Rainbows and Browns when fished with small weight. All of these waters are in Northern New Mexico; they work especially well in January, February and March.

This is definitely one of my first go to midges. I can count on the tried and true zebra midge to bring a few fish to the frying pan. Everyone should have a few of these in their boxes. I fish these year round in the Missouri Trout Streams.
