This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Swannundaze Midge.
The fly was developed by Boyd Aigner of Seattle Washington in the 1980’s.
The Swannundaze Midge is one I tied many years ago that I found in Randall Kaufmann’s Tying Nymphs book. Tying Nymphs and Tying Dry Flies were two important books for me and I tied many of the flies listed in them. You’ll notice a continued theme of Throw Back Thursday Flies from both of these books.
