I really enjoy your posts Wayne, this post is no different. I find it admirable that you can tie a sz 20 fly and make it look so good.

This reminds me I need to step up on my contributions.

Nice. I have been using these, fished dry, for the tiny PMDs that appear on the Henry's Fork in the late season, and the results have been pretty satisfying. I "think" these are 20s, but they could be 22s.

Wayne, those #10's look like they would wreak havoc at about any depth. I haven't tied flies like these, but I know I'm missing out on some really productive fishing for big trout and smallies.

Eric, those little numbers are very elegant and no doubt make just the right impression. Kudos on the beauty of these at this scale. Are these specifically a late season pattern in your area or are they needed in early season as well?

Thanks for all the great patterns fellas.

I use them for the late season Pseudocloeon hatch, but in an appropriate size (16-18/?) they'd likely do well for the standard Ephemerella/Drunella species of PMDs. So far I've only used them in the late season as they were tied out of frustration with all the other stuff I threw trying to imitate the tiny bugs. These were a godsend as the fish actually seemed to like them. :-) We are cursed/blessed with a lot of real little insects in the late season.

Thanks, Eric. I appreciate your insight.

We have a thread started in the Tying Section from long ago (months) that I started to post patterns relevant to out gathering. I haven't visited that post, nor has anyone, in a long time, but anyone with suggestions would be a big help to fill it in. Adding Wayne's big ole Bitch Creek looking #10's would probably not be a bad idea to that list.

Thread has been bumped with the addition of another big ole nasty bug. :-)
