The Black Beauty is another great midge pattern that imitates a midge pupa for difficult western tailwaters and spring creeks. This has become a standard pattern throughout the Rocky Mountains. Midge patterns can be particularly effective in the winter months, because they remain active in extremely cold temperatures while other insects are more dormant. Black Beauty’s don’t have to be black. This is a style of fly that can be many colors.
