Does anyone have a Zebra Midge recipe that they would be willing to share?

This fly is awesome on tailwaters! Best of all, it is a very fast tie and is easy to fish...

2nd the zebra for the tailwaters...though tie 'em smaller : #18 - 22. Olive, black, and grey will cover most basis, you could even use a few pheasant tail fibers as the body, works great when the smallest olives come off on the SoHo, may want to add a tail for added effect - though I don"t think then it qualifys for a zebra pattern, but then it really doesn't matter when its catchin' fish!

Down here in GA, I fish a lot of midges on the Hooch. Here is a site that has some of my favorites:

P.S. The above site is not that fast.

Wow [smiley=shocked.gif] [smiley=shocked.gif], Chuckwalla, Mr. Craven ties some nice flies and uses some good photography! Some of those are entirely to pretty to feed to a trout. Good site, got it bookmarked now! Thanks for the info...
