The Money Midge is a great little pattern that I've been fishing for a few years now. I've tested it on the picky trout of the South Platte River as well as the Dolores River trout. The Dolores River and Cheeseman Canyon will make or break a fly pattern. It's simple, with just two materials. One material is my "Slim Rib" material. It's a great ribbing material for small flies and is offered in 5 colors. I tie these in size 18-24 on a TMC 2488 hook. Light Brown is my favorite color that matches most midges.
