Tying the Forget-me-knot Midge

Here's a simple little midge pattern tied by Tim Flagler, who is usually behind the camera while someone else ties.   All it takes is some 15lb. mono and dubbing, and you can crank them out in no time.  He uses Amnesia, which comes in a few different colors for the body and black dunning for the thorax.  It might not be a bad idea to tie some with a peacock herl thorax, too. 

I'm tying a bunch up in a couple of different colors for my trip to Montana, as an alternative to the serendipity.  I'll report back after we return.

Tie some up, and sharpen your hooks!
