This is a great all-round dry fly pattern which will represent a Hawthorn, Gnat and Adult Midge..It is worth tying in a smaller size as well and instead of CDC as the wing a pearly flash can be used.

Thread: Uni-8/0 Black
Body: Small or Micro Black Suede Chenille
Legs: Pre-Knotted Black Pheasant Tail
