Default A midge emerger, and some damsel nymphs

Midge

Hook- #16 dry fly
Body- black thread
Rib- Olive
Throax- olive-ish dubbing blend (peacock ice dub, slf, fly rite, olive hare)
Wing case- olive antron

This is one that I tied after catching a natural and noticing it was a diffrent colour to most of the others I have seen, so I tied a few its from a still water section of a river

Damsel nymphs

Tail- olive rabbit
Body- olive rabbit
Throax- chartruse/olive dub blend
Wing case- olive rabbit
Eyes- burnt mono
Rib- dubbed rabbit fur (Left)- copper wire (right)

I ran out of marabou, so Ive done some in rabbit fur to see if it will work
