When midge larvae reach maturity they seclude themselves in the bottom debris and begin pupation. Pupas develop in as little as a week. The pupal midges then rise to the surface and hatch in the surface film. The rise to the surface can take quite a while. In calm water this assent to the surface is a fairly straight line with the pupa hanging vertically, sometimes suspended for hours. In moving water the pupa is swept along, often for a long distance before it finally reaches
|the surface to hatch. Hatching can occur any time of day or night, but is most prevalent during low light hours. Midges are so prolific and divers that there are almost always midge pupa available to trout in any body of water at any time. This makes the midge pupa one of the most important fly types.|
This wire body fly sinks quickly and is effective in both lakes and streams.
