Question What should I do next?

I just recently started tying, and I can make an ok pheasant tail, prince, and hair's ear. I mainly fish nymphs, so that is what I am working on before I start tying dries. What popular nymph should I try to learn next?

Midges. Start w/ zebra midges, as they are even easier than nymphs to tie...basically just a bead, thread and wire ribbing. From there, look 'em up on the internet and you'll find endless possibilities. They'll catch fish almost anywhere and are great to fish alone or drop off of nymphs or dries.

I forgot, I tied a couple black and copper zebra midges, but I have not fished a midge yet. They are pretty easy to do and cheaper on materials. Maybe I should see how I like fishing them and start tying more.
