Re: Midge Fly Swap #1, WInter 2012
Very cool, and if you had to diagnose all the patterns like you did with mine cudos for the extra effort.
Close on the hooks I used, they are 2487s. I don't really know the difference except that 2457's don't go down that small. They are 18's.
And the skirts are actually Ostrich Herl.
BTW, I think I'm gonna officially call those things Hula Midges. They name doesn't seem to be taken and I haven't found the pattern elsewhere.
