An excellent adult midge fly pattern with moderate visibility and a high profile.

Midges, those tiny insects that fly into your eyes. Annoying, but, yet, tasty trout bites. Midges are a key insect for trout year-round and a very important insect to imitate. As one of the best midge patterns out there, Griffith’s Gnat deserves a seat in the box.

I bought a handful of flies from The Fly Crate. They arrived quickly and were reasonably priced, so I was surprised as I poured them out of the package, to see that each fly was genuinely beautiful! I tie most my own flies these days, so I appreciate the difference between a quickly thrown 'work fly', and something you spend some time on. I got a few scuds and midges from 'the crate' and was genuinely delighted by the craftsmanship, even in something as mundane as a bead-head midge. These guys put something special into their work, and it shows. (The winter-trout took notice as well!).
Got the Gnat and several other flies. All nicely tied, just what I was looking for.
This was my first oder and it went very well. I'll be back for more.
Quality looking fly anxious to use it soon
