Follow the link for the scintilla recipe. It is on Mike Mora's Fly Pattern Page.

Just eliminate the tail and you have a scintilla. I like black with silver wire and grey with silver wire.


Follow this link for the UFO. It is posted on Jude Duran's site.

Hey Midgeaholic, I require a couple of subtle elements on a few your ties. In the first place the chamois leech. Do you attach the chamois to the snare with a couple of turns of string at the curve and after that overlap the chamois back to the twist and move the string to the eye and tie off at the eye? This resembles the chamois would wrap around the snare shank inexactly and the last detail at the snare twist would wave in the current. Does this appear to be redress or am I missing something?

Additionally your little midges, Do you clasp off the plumage on the highest point of the fly or the base. I can't help thinking that the mantle cut off of the top would result in the fly to buoy on its side. On the off chance that the base is cut the fly would sit at first glance. Do you utilize standard dry fly snares?

I think this is the story I've been searching for a long time.
