The Twisted Sister

#24

The Twisted Sister is a spin off of the UFO midge and the Bling Midge.
It's roots are on the San Juan River, but this version was designed and tested on the South Platte River in Colorado.  It's a simple tie, the magic material is the Madera Wing.  If you cannot find Glamour Madera, you can use Spirit River's Midge-Bodi Pearl.  It's essentially the same thing.
Hook:  Orvis Big Eye Hook 18-26
Thread:  Black 8/0
Body:  Coats & Clark, Twisted, color to match midge colors
Wing: Glamour Madera
Head:  Black Thread

  1. Nice tie, I like this in 18-20. Any smaller and I can't see it.
