Default bead chart?

I'm needing to get some beads for smaller nymphs I fish a copper john a ton and have great luck with it but the beads I have will only go on a size 18 mustad 3096B hook and I want some beads for the smaller guys like size 20 and 22 and also small midges

but I don't really know what sizes I need
gonna be ordering a few things from JStockard here soon so thought I would ask you guys what beads to use

As a new tier, I'm trying to picture tying a size 22 copper john.
If I did it successfully, I would store it in a T gauge model railroad car.
