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.
