    Of course it works. But most likely not because the trout see two midge emergers... most likely they think it is something else.

    Question is, does it work BETTER than a single midge emerger pattern? I still believe they see the sucker as some manner of leech, blood worm or SJ worm.

    If I'm wrong and the sucker does work better than a typical midge emerger pattern, I'm certainly not above tying and using them myself.

    I do draw the line at a Chernobyl Ant :)
