Default Re: old guy problem - seeing #20 midge dries

32's!
I can barely tie on 24's...

But I'll echo what others have said.
Big elk hair, spider, stimulator, beetle, or hopper indicator, or a neon post parachute adams if the bug junk spooks the fish. The 'clown shoe caddis' looks ridiculous, but makes a great indicator that takes fish.

I like to tie heavier tippet to the indicator (like 4x), and lighter line following (like 5x-6x). If a big fish smacks the indicator, you have stronger line to work with, and if you snag the lower fly, you can break it off without losing the upper fly.
