    I like the midge! Add a little flash wrapped at the gape end and wrap underneath the clear ribbing back up the shank. Leave a small trigger amount exposed at the gape.

    If you want any input, I think your foam should be a bit further back on the hook to start which would give more room for hackle at the front without crowding the eye. I would shorten you hackle and elk/deer hair length a smidge, and add a couple extra wraps of hackle at the front. Think that would perform a bit better

    Although I'm sure your fly will catch fish fine and I am a bit of a Never-sink snob. I can't personally tie them like I like them and constantly mooch off Nathan or buy them off the kids in Africa through Byron and Daniel

    Thanks Ducky,

    I will give your suggestions a try when I tie up my next batch. Crowding the hook eye is something I have to always watch.
