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

Hook- #12 (similar to the 200R)
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

Very nice ties. Wonderfully minimalistic on the midge and the damsel tie is very cool.
