This pattern took me to the final table of the Norwegian Fly Tying Championship 2018.
It is an imitation of a midge transforming into an adult insect. The pattern is much like the Straggle Midge, but with different materials
Hook : Ahrex FW524 Superdry #12-18
Tying Thread : Semperfli Classic Waxed thread 18/0, Black
Tail: Crystal Flash (two small pcs)
Body : Stripped Peacock Quill, Natural (underbody build up with tying thread)
Spot : Semerfli Fluoro Brite, Blood Red
Shield : Foam, Black
Wings : Hackletippets, Dun
Antennas : Cdc, White
Thorax : Cdc, Natural Grey
Legs : Deer Hair, Black
This is a fly with a lot of different materials. And the results is satisfying. Build up the body with tying thread before wrapping the quill (add some glue on the body before wrapping).
