Ed Koch " has come to be known as one of the top exponents of the art of midge fishing for trout. ...[and has been] ...for the past fifteen years a topflight professional fly tyer. "Midge fishing ...has been little written about ...[and] ...this newest branch of the angler's art is still in its formative stages. ...These pages give a personal view of a large, rather new, and quite complicated chapter in the history of fly fishing. The material herein is drawn from notes and articles written over a decade. The task of organizing and amplifying the material turned out to be far more than I'd bargained for. The plan I finally settled on was to recount my own experiences of frustration, investigation, tying, and testing." Chapters include: Tools and techniques; The herl midge; The wet black ant; Grizzly hackle yellow; Black and brown midges; A pair of mavericks; Midge nymphs; Dun and black spinner; The white midge; The little olive; Caenis (Tricorythode); Notes on tackle.
