Made a few midge patterns for an upcoming trip this fall.  Had to stop using my Regal vise.  The opening lever caused my right hand fingers to cramp up.  The red ones, use a "secret" material that I harvest out of old earbud cords.  Lost of very fine red, brass, and other colored wire in them.  The wire is even finer than my thread.  I think the ones with blue ribs will be a match for the Blue Ridge midge. but that's not where I am going.

The Natural Shrimp:

Hook: Mustad 3407, #1

Thread: Uni-Thread 6/0, tan

Tail: Bucktail, tan

Eyes: Golden Pheasant tippets

Legs: Saddle Hackle, tan grizzly

Body: Hareline Dubbing, cinnamon caddis

Back: Mallard flank, gold

Capt. Bob mentioned a while back about the transition synthetic materials and I wanted to go back to an old school shrimp without requiring any synthetic materials. It's good to go back to basics sometimes.

Thread - Black

Underbody - Yellow dubbing, natural or synthetic

Overbody - Pale deer hair, which also forms the tail and the head 

Ribbing - Crisscrossed thread

Historical Note: This original pattern is a creation of Ann Schweigert who opened her first fly shop in Luzerne, Michigan along with her husband Jack. Ann & Jack remained in business until Jack’s death in 1985. This pattern was developed in the late 1930’s. This effective pattern is so simple it’s almost primitive.

I've tied them with black, tan as well as the yellow bodies.  Last March I included them in a Ladies Night fly swap - fly patterns developed by women tyers.  I just LOVE 2X2 patterns!

DerrillP: The gills are White Gutermann Bulky Nylon.  It folded into 4 pieces and pulled through the bead with a loop of 4# mono, then the tags are tied down under the thoraxes.

Thread: Danville 6/0 Brown

Tail: Coq de Leon, dark pardo

A fine wire rib would help durability. I used Krazy glue under the abdomen. We'll see how that works out.
