It’s a good idea to always have midge patterns with you when fishing a spring creek Dr. Ernest Schwiebert told me the presence of midge adults tells you is there are pupa in the film. I believe the fish take Al’s Rat for a midge pupa

Whenever I see or suspect midge activity the fly of choice is the "Rat,"

Adult midges on the water also means Gnat time.

George A. Griffith’s tied his Gnat with a peacock body palmered with grizzly hackle.

Dr Ernestt Schwiebert popularized the fly believing trout saw it as cluster of resting or mating diptera on the surface film.

When fishing the midge, Rats and Gnats will keep you serve you well.
