I like all of these midges, since I can SEE THEM, unlike the
real ones which I try to thread on a leader in the wind, etc..

nice little guys they are.

HOOK: Dry fly, size 20-24
THREAD: 8/0 Black or Spider Thread about 12/0 but strong for it diameter
TAIL: Pale Dun hackle fibers
BODY: Very little black dubbing, mostly thread for the body, a bit of dubbing for the thorax
WINGS: Tied spent style, white antron

Since I can't see them if they get past 20 feet, just watch for a "slurp" or "wake" in the area at the end of your fly line and hope!
