I started to think the opposite - mostly what people though were midges, were mainly blackflies or whatever the non biting form we've got around here...the larvae are everywhere in the tailwaters and often confused for midges - but hey, really its all the same for a patten so no point splitting to many hairs - zebras, zebras, zebras - it'll cover your midge and your blackfly larvae. Though, emerging - its interesting to note that blackflies bubble up and do the caddis thing so for what thats thier dry profile is different if you'd really want to make seperate patterns - sometimes that part does make a difference on finicky fish... heck when in doubt, chuck a streamer go for the monster thats trying to eat the little guys sipping the micro bugs
May you find a rise in every puddle... - WATERBORN
