Since wire was mentioned as a body wrap...Check out these sizes and colors from Semperfli, which will eventually be available here in the U.S. :

Semperfli Fly Tying Wires

I have asked my local shop, Bob Marriott's ( now under new ownership), to get on the bandwagon with Semperfli products...

All of those guys that Norm linked to are some of the better Midge designers in the US... I would add one more - Pat Dorsey who owns Blue Quill Anglers:

Midges at the Blue Quill Angler

Some great looking flies posted on this thread.
If you like tying the Zebra Midge you might also want to take a look at the "Tiger" midge. Many variations on a google search.
