Midge Man (Midge Man’s Fly Box) makes an interesting point about the Miracle Midge’s subtle changes that occur when the correct materials are used for the fly. Once in the water, the fly will appear translucent with the underlying thread wraps providing a subtle color cast beneath the white floss. This could be an interesting experiment…but, as Midge Man indicates, don’t go to far afield or you get away from the productive original. Truly small midges don’t require a lot of working parts. Don’t over think the simplicity that produces fish. It is a common trait of fly tiers to tinker out of a creative bent. But, remember what you are trying to match.
