Joe,

John's suggestion is excellent. In Montana is it very common practice to tie two Tricos on the same #16 or #18 hook in order to get a small size fly and have it appear like two flies lying together on the water while giving the angler a larger hook gap for better hookups. No reason the same thing wouldn't work with the smaller midges you're trying to imitate.
