I think the fly you bought that you are calling a midge pattern is Trico spinner pattern. A Trico is not a midge. It is mayfly that are as small as midges. Note the long tails on your fly. Midges do not have tails like mayfliesJust got home... here are the two flies I was using. The one on the left was the ‘midge’ I was sold... the one on the right is a gnat?
And here’s a pic of a midge that landed right next to my fly!
