Joyce:  If you are successful in scanning the fly, would you send the image to 
me also?  Thanks.
By the way, I use gold tinsel with peacock and brown hackle, not silver 
tinsel....
DonO and I are in a conversation regarding spinning versus noodling.

The fly  is Larry Johnson's pattern. He ties it with silver mylar rib, I did
this with the green holographic holloshimmer..it is available at the
JoAnne's fabric store in the thread department.  It is actually a fine (goes
through a sewing machine needle) mylar  thread that comes in gold, silver
both plain and holographic, two shades of green and red and copper. I love
it for the fine ribbing of midges..it is very strong and adds a bit of
flash. I'll see if I am successful in getting a copy of the midge on the
scanner and send it to you..looks like the one Don tied.  The pattern is
quite simple:
Scofield minute magic midge
Hook: any dry fly
Hackle: Brown..can be right size of a size larger
Rib: Silver mylar or silver or colored Holoshimmer mylar thread.
Thread: I use olive or red, depending on whether I rib with red or green or
silver
Body; 1-3 peacock herls, depending on the hook size.
I tied these on a size 16 94840 Mustad, but you can use size to match what
your're kicking up.   Wrap a layer of thread, at the hook bend, tie in the
hackle, peacock herl and mylar or Holoshimmer ribbing. Hold all three with
your thread and spin the vise making a nice tight hairy chenille. Then spin
the vise again and wind the  chenille rope onto the hook, tie off, It's
done.  These are the flies that Larry tied at Sowbug I believe.  A  very
effective fly. You can literally tie one in one minute. I fish them a lot.
    If you can't find the Holoshimmer, let me know and I can get some for
you. It's a bit pricey, about $5.00 a spool, but that contains a lot of
thread. I wait until there is a 40 or 50% off coupon and get it then. Enjoy.
 I'll see if I can get it scanned and a picture sent off. Joyce
