Default Golden Olive Biot Midge

I decided to spend some time at the vise while waiting on the rain to stop this morning.

I like it I think nymphs tied with biots with the rough edge out give the impression of the gills that run along the sides of most nymphs. I might try a few without the bead head so that they would hang just below the surface to imitate the pupa stage. Let us know how it fishes

I like it, I tie one similar but use a smaller bead and no dubbing behind the bead. IMO midges are very streamlined and a big ball of dubbing could look unnatural to fish. I also coat my bodies with super glue so it gives them a shine as well as makes them dang near indestructible
