Much of the Top Secret Midge success is a result of combining a two-tone thread body (brown and white) with an emerging wing made from Glamour Madeira. The segmented abdomen is “dead-on” when you scrutinize the naturals. The tuft of Glamour Madeira adds a subtle hint of flash without overdoing it. The thorax is tied with rust-brown Superfine dubbing, which helps, highlight the area that contains the wings and legs of the emerging adults. I’ve found having the right silhouette during selective feeding phases can make or break your success. It’s hard to argue with the “size, shape, and color” formula—it has been fool-proof for generations.
