these look awesome. Thanks for takin the pictures, S_L.

For best fly, I think it's a tie between slowdown and fishingal.

Fishingal gets my vote I hate tying them and these look great.

All awesome looking midges. Never thought of leaving the flash as a tail (shuck?). Just what is it imitating?

I really liked Slowdowns midge with the gills. I think that's becasue I have a hard time aligning stuff on the side.

Definitely report back, I'm curious too... though I'm probably too lazy to start tying it, but you never know.

Used about 1/3 of the midges from the swap on the Pan this weekend. Black Juju was favorite among the picky rascals. Red thread midges were the ticket, but none of us tied any of those! The dark, size 20 or smaller emergers with limited flash were also productive. Nice flies all around.

DozerF350's midge was the best fly of the day in 11-mile canyon on Saturday, accounting for over a dozen fish.
