    I call it mike's midge, it has produced pretty well for me in most of the rivers i have fished here in utah. i think they look so much better with the naked eye, because ron takes such good pictures, all of a sudden i am critisizing the hell out of my ties, now i can see all the discrepancies. oh well. i consider it a combonation of a zebra midge, foam wing emerger and a k.f. flasher. i fish it like a nymph.

    Hook - any small hook, i tie them on 16's - 22's
    Body - any color thread you want, i use red, green, black, tan, or olive. i have had the best success on red, green and black
    Rib - small oval silver tinsel
    Underwing - 3 or 4 strands of rainbow krystal flah cut short
    Overwing - white foam cut shorter then the underwing
    Head - usually olive brown krystal dub, but have used black lite bright with equal success.

    I always fish it as my bottom fly under either a worm, nymph or soft hackle.
