Name That Fly

I don't know what kind of fly this is, but the bass were gulping these down like crazy. They were everywhere.

Chironomid midge. They're a big forage for juvenile warmwater fish and can be a main forage for trout in some lakes.

From the picture, it appears to be a pretty good sized Midge also. The bigger the better as far as Bass are concerned.
