Tying the Tippet

The Tippet



The Tippet is one of my favorite midge patterns throughout the year. It fishes very well through the winter, as-well-as on both stillwater and streams. The profile and segmentation, coupled with the red trigger point seems to be the key with this pattern. Tied several years ago, it has been a mainstay in my midge box ever since.
