Peter,

I tie these up in size 6 and 8 on 4X long-2X strong hooks.

I also use a pattern I call the freak fly. It's like a hex nymph, but for the thorax legs I use long schapplen or similar long filo-plume feathers collared. I dead drift this one and then let it swing.

This one takes about 2-3 times longer to tie.
