I've tried tying a few jujubee midges with materials close to what I saw recommended in a recipe. And then I recalled paint brush midges, which I have used occasionally, and tied up a few to mimic the jujubee pattern using two black and one light (almost white) paint brush bristles (fairly fine). I wonder if anyone else has tried this perturbation of the jujubee midge? Maybe the brush bristles are too opaque to be effective.
I have not had a chance to try fishing them yet, but will on my late March trip to the SJ.

I've tied up a few of the paintbrush patterns with moderate success. I've not tied them to match Charlie's JuJuBes but more in the standard configuration of midge larva and pupa. Hera are a couple of patterns:

Here are a couple of baetis tied with paintbrush fibers

Hope these are useful to you,
