    Testing a new gadget. A Raynox DCR-250 macro converision lens (USD 50). The lens is like a filter that you snap on in the fron to your ordinary telelens. I have tried it out with my telezoom (70-300mm) that have a minimum focus distance at 1.5 meter. With the snap on lens the distance with 300mm is about 20 cm from the objective.
    The picture.
    Midge - hook size 18 - benecchi chenille - goose biot and black hackle.
    The objective setting 100mm and aperture 22. At 200mm on the zoom lens the fly cover the hole photo frame.

    Trygve: Looks like the macro conversion is doing a very nice job. Nice looking black midge!

    Thank you mcnerney

    btw. the conversion lens is very practical if you do not want to have a lot of gear with you in the field - just put it in your pocket.

    Trygve: Very nice work, like always! I tied up some buzzers like your Maryland Cookie Buzzer last winter, the only difference was mine used a gold colored throat and I had really good results with it this season. I'll bet that black midge will fish great, I may tie up a few for next year.
