I especially like the kind of mottled look of the thorax even though "clean" flies are supposed to be crisp and even. Made me rethink that part of the way I tie my own flies. That means something.

Tim- that resined neck feather looks pretty grungy and disgusting... just like the real thing... I like it.

Thanks. Believe it or not that was purposeful, I like to play around and try new things. I tie most of my standard midges clean and neat but thought this one could use a little something else.....
