Mercury Midge - Tailwater Junkie

The Mercury Midge is a South Platte standby that has consistently fooled selective, hard-fished tailwater trout for over 20 years. Much of this patterns success stems from the clear, silver-lined glass bead that mimics a gas bubble that gets trapped in the midge’s thorax as it emerges. The Mercury Midge was named because the head area of this fly looks like a tube filled with mercury—thus the pattern was named the Mercury Midge. The Mercury Midge is an excellent attractor in a tandem…

Griffith's Gnat - Tailwater Junkie

The Griffith’s Gnat is one of the most versatile midge patterns ever fished. In larger sizes (#14-18) it imitates midge clusters and in smaller sizes (#20-22) it imitates single midges. We recommend carrying a standard Griffith’s Gnat and a Hi-Vis Griffith’s Gnat. The Hi-Vis variation is easy to see in high glare situations or in foam lines (mats) where it can be difficult to find your fly.

Craven's Two Bit Hooker - Tailwater Junkie

Charlie Craven changes the game with another killer pattern, the Two Bit Hooker. The goal of this pattern is to get the fly down into the zone as quick as possible. It does just that with two smaller tungsten beads back to back instead of one that messes up the proportions of the fly. Limiting the bulk with two smaller tungsten beads, enables this mayfly imitation to have a realistic, slender and flashy profile. The Two Bit Hooker is one of those flies that everyone must have in their…

Sparkle Wing RS2 - Tailwater Junkie

The Sparkle Wing RS2 was invented by professional fly tier Bob Churchill. Churchill’s pattern is a variation of the original RS2 created by Rim Chung nearly 4 decades ago. Churchhill substitutes Pearl Braid for the saddle-hackle webbing (for the emerging wing) used in the original design. Churchill uses a few fibers of elk for the tail. Another option is to use a clump of gray rooster hackle one shank length long. Although the original pattern was gray, you can easily change the color…

Ray Charles Sowbug - Tailwater Junkie

The Ray Charles Sowbug pattern hails from Montana and has been a Bighorn River staple for many years now. It is an excellent choice on all tailwaters to imitate smaller scuds and sowbugs. As the legend has it, the name comes from the fact that even a blind fisherman could catch a fish with this pattern. Typically, the Ray Charles Sowbug is tied with a hotspot head in either Red or Orange. The hotspot will act as a trigger to fool selective trout. Our version of the Ray Charles comes in…

The original Black Beauty was invented over two decades ago to imitate the heavy concentrations of midge pupae found in tailwaters below deep, bottom-release reservoirs. Don’t let the simplicity of this pattern fool you—it has consistently fooled selective trout all over the United States. While the original pattern performs extremely well, adding a clear, silver-lined glass bead and some Mylar tinsel (Flashback Mercury Black Beauty) increases the natural translucency of this emerging pupa…

Pale Olive Larva - Tailwater Junkie

The Pale Olive Larva is a simple as they get but it continues to fool countless tailwater trout. Midge larvae are an important food source for trout year-round because they get knocked loose from the substrate and drift continuously in the water column. This is a phenomenon referred to as constant drift. One of our favorite times to fish this pattern is during a flow increase (downstream demand or generate power). When the water levels rise, midge larva get swept from the substrate…
