Re: Type of hooks for midges

Just to chime in here with another approach. I usually tie my midges on an oversized hook. For example smallest midge hook I use is #18 wide gap, I just measure size of midge to be tied - #22, #24, etc. - then wrap thread on hook ending where it would be on the smaller hook. This serves two purposes...

I found that putting a small piece of white tape on top of the vise, at the rear of the fly, helps you to see the tail fibers. Doing this then ...
