Tak's Crystal Midge

Olive Body

Pearl Body

I found this one while doing a GOOGLE search for Chironomids

Hook: Tiemco TMC 2302 – size 10 to 22
Thread: Uni 8/0, white
Abdomen and rib: Stretch Magic, 0.5 mm, Olive or Clear
Top Wing case: Mirage tinsel, large
Side Wing case: Biots, brown or color to match the natural
Gills: Oral-B ultra floss, white
Protective Coating: Loon Fly Finish Clear

I substituted Pearl Tinsel for the Mirage Tinsel, White Hi-Viz for the White Dental Floss, Red Flexifloss for the Brown Biots and Clear Cure Goo for the Loon Fly Finish. The end product is virtually the same.
