The Great Fly Collection of 2012: Midges

In part two of our six part mini-series Scott presents us with his midge collection from this past winter. This box includes not only the typical fare of midges but also some unique prototypes and true to form, a few annelids. I couldn’t count how many he made because I actually had to work today, but as you can see from the pictures there are hundreds. Most of the flies have UV knot sense which he cures first with a UV light, and then puts in a homemade outdoor oven. His proprietary outdoor oven focuses direct sunlight to fully cure the knot sense creating a perfectly clear finish.

Lots of hours and I’m sure lots of beers went into this one.
