Midge Life Cycle by Dave Whitlock, from the book "Guide To Aquatic Trout Foods" - CLICK HERE TO BUY !!!

Midge larvae live in the bottom silts and are unavailable to trout most of the time.  During the pupal stage midges rise from the bottom and are often suspended and rise and fall with the light cycles.  During this stage they are can become a regular staple in the diet of trout, bass and panfish.  It is while midges are suspended in the surface film hatching that they provide the most 
exciting fishing.  They are very attractive to trout as they are easy targets.  It is a struggle or midge pupa to get though the surface film and hatching can proceed slowly.

When midge pupae come to the surface to hatch, they hang in the surface film and shiny bands develop on the abdomen.

The white foam head is easier for the angler to see.  If you want the fly to float a little higher, treat the foam head with fly floatant.
