First I appologize for not looking at your flys before I posted mine. When I scanned all the flys I realized that your version of this fly looks much better than mine. I should examine the flys more carefully before I start posting.
I have one river where small flys are the rule. Lots of fish, clear water, and heavy fishing pressure lead to using small flys unless one likes seeing the fish refuse flys.

|Brad||Sean, If you fish any of the tailwaters out west you can get by with size 20 flies but you will often get outfished 10 to one by the guy fishing 24 and 26 stuff. I experienced it on the green and it is especially true on the san juan where the river is a soup of micro midge larva. Big fish get bigger eating that tiny stuff all day long.|

man those are small
how often do you guys come across situations where you need to use those?

After seeing the pic of the flies next to the dime, I can suddenly remember why I don't tie many midges. :eyecrazy:
They look very good John.

GRR server screwups...
I can FTP to it, but then not see the directory on the web. And the 1'st two pictures are in that directory as well.

|DFix||John, please re-post; foto doesn't show up. TIA.|

Brad you can be the judge of if its tieable in smaller sizes. Heres the pattern tied in #26. Same materials just a different color
Next to a dime to show size.

|Brad||Snowshoe hair is one of my favorite materials. I tie it under a softhackle to give a bubble when it is under water or with a false cast and you have a floating fly. The grey underfur works great as a post for parachute BWO and without the hackle you get an emerging BWO that sits right in the film. I still like antron on midges for the touch of sparkle.|

|SDHflyfisher||the original patern i got the recipe from used snow shoe rabbit hair|
|03-04-2003 04:47 PM|
Brad, I don't know how small I can go. Ive bought them in #22. I'll see if I can tie a #26 tonight. One thing I forgot to put in the description is that the biots are easier to use if they are wet.
Sean that sounds great.
