tying midges or any other flies using 2 wires is no different than using 1 wire to create the body. just tie in the wires as you would if using 1 wire and wrap both forward at the same time. to eliminate any ugly bumps at the bend of the hook i always tie in the wire(s) behind the eye of the hook and often times when using a bead i will fill in the gap between the bead and shank by inserting the wire(s) inside the bead

in this tutorial, charlie craven uses super hair. just substitute wire for the super hair and tie it the same way. its the tying steps you want to copy

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
