    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.
