Tying the Pale Ale Midge

Merry Christmas!  I hope this finds you and your loved ones doing well.  I recently released a new tying video on tying a new pattern of mine, The Pale Ale Midge.
The Pale Ale Midge was designed to longer, more slender Chironomidae (Midge Larva) that often times show up in late spring.  When they are available, fish often key into them and seem to enjoy them.
