A disco midge nymph is a type of artificial fly used in fly fishing. The design imitates the immature stage of a midge, a small, aquatic insect crucial as a food source for fish in numerous freshwater environments.
The “disco” part of the name comes from the material used to create the body of the fly. It is a type of iridescent synthetic material that reflects light and creates a shimmering, disco-ball-like effect. This can be especially effective in clear water and under bright sunlight. And that is because it attracts the attention of fish and makes the fly stand out.
Overall, the disco midge nymph is a popular and effective pattern for anglers targeting trout, especially in cold, clear waters where midges are abundant.
