    I was expecting a size 22 Bugger.:) Nicely done, sir. I like your technique. I'll try some.

    Small :cool:

    More serious now - I am not actually sure. They were a present from a friend when we were fishing on the Norfork and White in Arkansas - home, in part, of very small flies...

    Looking at the bead on the ruler, looks like 3/128"-ish

    Cheers,

    It took you long enough ... :D

    I was going through an "Arthurian" period for awhile. This is my favorite and the only cartoon I have hanging in my house.

    It is not called Preemie for nought...

    But of course. I do that specifically to make the (in)famous cartoonist's day... :cool:

    Thanks for the encouragement, Hans. I doubt I'll ever get down that small. That's a nice tie, as usual.

    Thank you, for the you tube clip! You just taught me how to make my first wooly bugger though mine is olive and black. Great for beginners! It's even my first fly. :)
