I like more impressionistic flies.
Hook: #14 TMC 100
Thread: Black 6/0 UNI-thread
Body: Midge Diamond Braid (Red, Black or Chartreuse) covered by 2mm Black Foam
Hackle: Brown or Black
Overwing/Indicator: Since I'm blind I usually tie in a small piece of white or yellow foam so I can see the fly on the water.
