Those two paterns seemed to work well. With those two patterns, are 18s the smallest you go? Seems to me the midges are smaller then that.
Midges go down to dust size, but there is NEVER any reason to fish anything smaller then an 18. NEVER! The juice isn't worth the squeeze, again. Small hooks won't hardly hold in a fishes mouth, and a little larger fly draws more attention.
