Midge Pupa 5 Black

When midges hatch the pupae will hang in the surface vertically with the head up. During this stage they are an easy target for the fish and often appear in large quantites. Due to this, even large fish will start to feed in the surface. When you fish flies that imitaties the midges pupae, you need to do so with great patient, especially in still water. Instead of picking up the line and trying to another spot, let the fly or flies be still in the same spot for a while. Fish will find them and they will pick up the fly as long as your leader do not spook them and your imitation has the right proportion, size and looks. They are normally greenish, brownish, red or black in colour.

Midge Adult 4 Black

Just as with the midge pupae, the adult midge is of great importance to both fish and fly fisher. Especially so early and late in the season when a large hatch can bring good sized fish to the surface. J:son's imitation of an adult midge also works great to imitate a large number of other small insects that fish feed on, including micro caddis. Often fish will turn selective during a midge hatch and it's important to always keep imitations of both the pupae and the adult midge in your fly box. Remember to approach a fish with ease that is feeding on adult midges. Observe and be patient.

Scud 3 Olive Brown

There are many aquatic living insects and small animals that fish will feed on. Some of the most important once are scuds. These small crustaceans make out a large quantity of the biomass in many waters and many fish species will continue to feed on them all their life. Scuds are found in both still water and slow moving parts of streams and rivers all around the world. When they swim, they will form there body into a something that almost looks like a circle by bending it so that the tail reaches there head, and then quickly pushing it back into a straight position. When they do so, it almost looks like they are jumping. As you fish your imitation, it is important to imitate this way of swimming by making a short, quick pull in the line and then letting the fly fall slowly down again before the next short pull.
