My big spring Baetis pattern works very well for midge hatches and may be tied in any color. The basic pattern is;
thread body in the color of choice, I use pale cream thread
White hackle tips at the tail use single barbs
grizzly hackle.
This pattern can be adjucted for size and color and works for many different 'hatches' of midges and small mayflies. The first time I used this fly was at Big Spring, hence the name. Sorry I don't have a pic.

There is always time to do more to protect wild trout.

I hate tying the rainbow warrior, kicks some serious arse though, worked well in the spring for me. Never had luck on midges, but I don't do a lot of fishing during the winter time except for a few trips up to erie.

I have only ever caught one fish on a rainbow warrior, it's too unrealistic for my taste. Too much flash. Small frenchies are way to go.
