Hi, I have a midge tip line which I have never really used. Can someone give me some hints on the best way to fish this line (especially on still water in these hot conditions) and which are the best flies to use.

I also have two (5' and 8' ) slow and fast sinking tips, which again I don't use.

I think the reason I haven't used these is, I don't know what I am doing!

Use them whilst twiddling with a washing line of nymphs and a booby or fab, helps dig the leader in a bit more than a floater, good when there’s a bit of wind. Diawl bachs, crunchers, buzzers etc on the droppers and a buoyant pattern on the front, very handy when the fish are in top few feet of water.
