Default San Juan River Flies

I am trying to figure out how to determine the size of the foam wing on a foam wing emerger. I will be tying on hook size 22, 24, and 26 but wont go much smaller. Anyone have any ideas.

Give a look at Paul Freeman's flies for the SJ and elsewhere:

Flies | Roughrider Guide Flies

Not a lot of foam, just a smidge...His Shucka Kahn Midge worked really well for me on the Madison River three weeks ago...

P.S. Welcome to the Forum !!!
