When I fished the Canun area a couple of years ago the guide had a dynamite pattern that was tied on a number 8 hook. Legs and mono eyes were tied on the shank and a small piece of felt was glued on then one side coated with epoxy - no weight. You could cast these right on the head of the permit and not spook them - they just slammed this fly. I know I have seen pretty small patterns tied with yarn and light lead eyes that have legs - got a bunch from a good friend of mine, Bill Kiene ,who has a shop in Sacramento.
