How small
What is the smallest fly that you have tied? I know that FG ties a # 32 which is awesome. Me a # 22.

#18 to #22. It is suppose to represent a cluster, so at times maybe even a #16

Since I like fishing small creeks [no big streams or rivers nearby] thus a size 20. Although my arsenal includes sizes down to a 14.

In that case, look up Klinkhammer. Bigger hook but the way it sits in the water, it looks smallSmile

That's a new name to me, or at least I think so. Ah yes, never too old to learn.

Giving the illusion of a smaller bug. I also use a TMC 200R and put a little kink in it like the hook in the video
