Hen Wing Midge:
Hook: Partridge Hooks standard dry fly hook# 16 to #20
Thread: black 8/0
Body: Black dubbing
Wing: A single feather from a Whiting American hen Cape in dark dun
Hackle: Grizzly dry fly hackle
Note: I tie my midge patterns utilizing The tiniest of feathers that are found at the top of the hen cape, then tie it in horizontal over the body. When tying a larger size I will use two feathers, tied in at an angle.
