Winter Midge Fly Fishing Techniques and Tips from Montana

Learn some useful winter midge fly fishing techniques from this Madison River tutorial that covers everything from clothing to technique.

Kelly Galloup of Galloup’s Slide Inn fly fishing guide and outfitter goes over some considerations to maximize your winter midge fly fishing techniques in this short tutorial. He covers everything from keeping your hands warm to presentation to get on the trout in winter conditions.

Those are some handy tips from a Montana expert on keeping comfortable and getting the most out of your winter midge fly fishing. Drifting midges with the rod tip high is a great way to get down in front of those trout that are resting and a little more selective on what they are going to take as they are preserving precious energy in the colder water temperatures.

Kelly Galloup demonstrates why it is a great idea to hire, or at least consult an expert or guide at a fly shop when fishing a new area. Pro guides bring a level of understanding and expertise on that specific fishery that takes years to build.
