When The Adults Are A Size 22...

This little fella and about 5 million of his little friends were flying around on the south platte near mineral.  I was a bit caught off guard since they were so small. I simply did not have anything that small in my box. I had to tie some.  I think Phile Iwane's  Iwan-E-Dunn will be just the ticket. 

This is a favorite of mine to tie. The abdomen is mono filament wrapped with olive thread. The tails are paint brush bristles. A short post creates the wings and a bit of grizzly hackle creates the legs over the dubbed thorax.  I tie these on a size 22 emerger hook, but actually the size of the fly is determined by the length of the Abdomen.  Stay tuned for a video showing how to tie these.  #TightLines #Tiedforapurpose  #jeffputsthatcraponeverything.
