Default Re: Smaller hooks, what not to tie on them

dont believe everything you hear!

small flies catch BIG fish

use finer materials and threads

minimize thread wraps. 312 wraps of thread is not necessary to tie on or hold most materials

use a magnifying lamp to see the small stuff better

if you fish the south platte near deckers and the san juan you know the smaller is better!

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
