Midge Pattern by Eric Pettine

Had the opportunity to visit a tying seminar hosted by Eric Pettine a few weeks ago, and watch him tie this great little midge pattern. I thoroughly enjoy watching Mr. Pettine tie the variety of patterns in his vast quiver of flies, from soft hackles, to streamers to his steelhead selection. 
If you get the opportunity, get on down and check one of this tying seminars out, I know the winter season is quickly coming to an end at many of the area fly shops, but there is next season.
Just a quick side note, I  changed it up a little to include the grey foam , but thought you would enjoy this pattern.
