Re: old guy problem - seeing #20 midge dries
Man I'm WITH ya on this! I recently fished a hatch of #22 BWO's and fortunately I had a couple of parachute versions in my box. I could see the post even when I couldn't see the fly. I even had one with an orange post that was very easy to spot. Maybe give that a try, but my best bet with the little stuff has been like you already offered- tie on a big fly and use it as an indicator.
