Al's Rat

A very simple midge pattern from the vise of Al Miller.


Hook: Your favorite, size 20-32
Thread: The original color is brown monocord
Body: Built up thread
Thorax: Muskrat


Can also be tied in different colors. I used black, tan, purple, olive and red threads.

Al's Rat is one of the best midge patters going. Simple and a quick tie. I love your variations.

I'm a new tier and appreciate the simplicity of that midge pattern.
I'll add some to a box.
Thanks a midge.
