It wasn't a very nice day and I spent some time at the bench on size 18 midge patterns. All feedback welcome.

Don,

I like them all. Is it just me or is the bead head on the first one cocked a little? Just seems to be at an angle I would not expect, but I'm a newbie at this, so take the question with a grain of salt.

nice ties....I tie a lot like that and I also tie alot with as small a bead as I can fit over the hook and almost no dubbing/peacock....I think it gives the look of a smaller 20/22 size fly without going to the smaller hook size.

I have also started using straight eye emerger hooks in small sizes to give a larger hook gap as well

They look like bugs you would find in water like a stream.

They look delicious

They look good but if you want some honest criticism....

1.The first two are too fat. Find some natural midge larva and take a look at it. they arent too fat and tapered like that.

2.beads are too big.

besides that, they'll still fish. :)
