YUP #10-12'S work great!
size 6, usually a BB or egg sucker.
Smallest I would swing is are these Alec Jackson SI #11's :
Gorgeous flies, Flyer! Saw "Queen of the Waters" mentioned earlier . . . now we're talking the years of my youth . . . anybody for a "Wickham's Fancy" or "Major Pitcher?" How about a "Parmachene Belle?" (no clue as to whether that's spelled correctly . . . )
Now that is a very nice touch .... a 10 Coin to give a scale. Dang those are well done, especially given the actual size.
Thanks Jim and Fred , glad you guys like . I really think the tiny mixed wings have a time and place to be swung . I find in late winter , around the end of Feb. before run-off , when the water is cold and gin clear these "tinys" work the best . Then once again in late fall , end of Oct. in my neck of the woods , just before the rains come and bring in the "B" runs , the "A" run steelhead are fairly wary and are use to picking up salmon eggs and nymphs floating out of the redds .
