Notes: The Griffth's Gnat usually is used to imitate clusters of midge emergers or mating chironomids. It was developed by George Griffiths, one of the founders of Trout Unlimited. It can be fished as either a dry fly (mating chironomids) or subsurface as a cluster of midge larvae. A small amount of split may be necessary to get it down. Also use this fly in tandem with nymph patterns , using the Griffith's as an indicator with some floatant. The original pattern uses peacock herl for the body. However, many variations exist which use either thread or dubbing in colors of gray, olive, black , or tan.
