Lost friend found,
January 15, 2014

"While on a trip to Colorado when the fishing turned slow I put on a midge pattern with a white cone head. The fishing improved by about 100 percent as I hooked fish after fish for about an hour. It was the last hour of the last day of the trip and I couldn't wait to try this fly when I got back home to New Jersey. My first day back on my home waters I fished this fly and caught quite a few fish on it. I only had 2 of these flies and eventually I lost both of them. I couldn't remember the exact name of the fly or where I had bought it. I found a few which were almost the same but they did not produce like the original. Finally I found this fly in the Orvis catalog and purchased half a dozen. The first day I tried one I caught fish right away even under different conditions than I had fished in previously. It appears this fly works under many different conditions on different rivers. I feel I have been reunited with an old friend. I can't wait to fish it in Pa. this spring."

Must have stillwater fishing,

"Use the the Mad Bomber as an attracter fly on your stillwater nyphing rig. Drop a TH zebra midge under it and wait for the take. Something about the white beadhead gets the takes"
