Can you use them? I tie them in 2 colors, black and brown crawfish.
Let me know.
Sounds like a good pattern if they are fairly small. In my limited experience on these small waters less is more. #12 Wooly generally out performs a #8, #16-18 nymphs much better than a #14 etc. That's been the case around here this year anyway.
No particular quantity of flies is needed either. The fly boxes the chapter provides do not have to be identical. They just try to fill them with flies appropriate for a first time flyfisher.
