Serendipity Midge Fly

According to our research, the Serendipity Midge fly originated
in Europe long ago. The fly was first known as a Buzzer. Mr.
Ross Marigold, a Madison River guide, is thought to be the
originator of the version sold by fly shops today. The Serendipity
does a good job of imitating a midge pupa and is now a
commonly used midge fly pattern.

Midges are found wherever there is water. All trout streams have
them and the trout eat them year-round but they are usually not
give much consideration until the water is very cold. The reason
for this is there's usually far fewer other aquatic insect hatches
during cold weather.

The version of the Serendipity Midge fly we prefer has a deer
hair section just behind the head of the fly that imitates the
thorax of the midge. The deer hair head and thorax adds some
floation to the midge fly and causes it to float with the fly's head
in an upright direction like real midges do when they are
hatching in the surface skim. We have Olive Serendipity Midge
flies, Red Serendipity Midge flies and Black Serendipity flies.

The Serendipity Midge fly is effective in stillwater such as found
in lakes and ponds as well as rivers and streams that hold trout.
It can be fished with or without a strike indicator. Most angler add
tiny split shot to their tippet a few inches above the fly.  

We suggest using very light tippet, not larger than a size 6X. Fly
rods with a slow to medium action work best because they help
prevent breaking fine tippets. We also suggest the use of midge
threader fly boxes for those that have trouble tying on small
midge flies. They make it very easy to tie on the flies out on the
water especially when there's low light conditions.
