I get a lot of inspiration following various forums, facebook, planet.dryfly.me and other places. The other day Hammer Creek Fly Fishing posted a video on G+ with his version of the spring creek midge. I have had many bead colors in some jars for a time that I haven’t tied anything with, so I tied up a green variant with different bead colors to see how they turned out. The beads I bought at a craft store for next-to-nothing ( I always pop into the craft shops to see if I can find anything to tie with ), and I should have a lifetime supply available.

These midges are a great pattern to start out with, and once you get the hang of it you can produce a large number very quickly!
