    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.
