How to tie the Mayhem Midge

I am not sure who created this fly, but this is a lethal little pattern best tied on a longer shank hook. If anyone knows, please share some history in the comments. The Mayhem Midge is a super effective emerging pattern trailing behind a dry, or fishing it with little to no weight under an indicator. Mix your sizes and colors for different species of midges or mayflies. For our western trout rivers sizes 16 and smaller is best, but on stillwaters, you can tie them quite a bit bigger. Black, brown, olive, blue dun, and wood duck are all worth having in your box.
