RE:Lets' talk FLIES FOR TROUT
You are having a laugh over size 22 midges, we just got back from the san juan and caught some real pigs on size 24 and 26 midge patterns. If you plan to fish the tailwaters out west these small sizes are an absolute must. We used thread midges, miracle nymphs and black sparkle midge emergers in 22 to 26 for the nymphing. We caught rising fish on stillborn midges size 24 with a size 26 RS-2 at the point. I'll post some pictures when they get in.
