I've been fishing rising fish for days now and I can't figure out what they're eating at all..I caught a few on march browns... last couple of times didn't really see any bug action at all...Got some rusty spinners today to try but that was not it at all...tonight the hatch was on...dark, mothy, and very a 24...The best thing I could come up with was a size 20 BWO and 20 blue quill...good looks but only two that I got some 3.25x cheater specs..what tiny bugs should I be fishing...I would have loved to have tried a size 24 black dry midge or gnat. I could catch more with a net...haha

This what I use when midges are on the water. Both seem to work well. They're both tied on a size 20 2 XS shrimp/caddis pupae hook which makes it about the same size as a one tied on a standard size 24 dry fly hook. The black one has worked well on most streams I've fished in the Northeast.
