Got to keep this fairly simple since I've never tied "tiny". According to the guys in a fly shop on the eastern Sierra this is the hot fly in the right size. I'll be doing a "Zebra Midge Emerger" in a #20.

Another update; we're at 11 tyers now; only space for one more.

Here's the roster and the patterns, as I have them at this point:

Futuramille - TBD
Joni - TBD
Bamboo10 - BWI para extended body, #20
Jimmie - Zebra MIdge Emerger, #20
Pocono - Griffith Gnat variant, #22
BlueDun - TBD
FISHN50 - TBD
tob1 - TBD
Greenwood - BWO wet, #20
Kerry Pitt - TBD
BlueBird - TBD

Are we going to see any hook sizes below #22; I hope so because I know that some of you can tie them well.

At my current age it is more, seeing the hook than tying on it. I have some 28's I could try something on that size range. I'll let you know tomorrow, for sure. I'll tell you this sitting around waiting for surgery, taking drugs so I can stay functional sucks!!! I woke up just before I made this post at 0330hrs. and this was the first thing on my mind. I'm loosin' it I tell ya!

I've decided on a #24 BH GRHE Nymph. I landed 1 brown and 2 bows with it and besides two browns on a "pheasant tail nymph" in the same size, they are the only two ties of that size I have proven to myself will work. Probably the local as the fish were biting GRHE's from size 16 - 24.

That's a really nice looking fly Trygve. I've never seen a paraloop tie before. I like it; looks really buggy to me. How about a little pictorial "how to tie" on that one(?)

I'll put your pattern in the roster.
