Default stripper midge

Good looking bug. I have seen something similar tied with natural goose biot. On that thread, it mentions being hard to put beads on something that small, and it is, but Wapsi has a neat pair of tweezers called beadzers that makes it a lot easier for putting beads on any size hook unless it is smaller than like a 26.
