      Got the tiny hooks, now I want to tie some tiny flies. Have read Ed Engle’s book several times ,,, wondering if someone out there has thoughts on thread? His list? Your preferences? Thinking 28 and smaller

        Uni-thread 17/0, or Danville Spiderwed 30 denier should work ok.

            Looking forward to whatever you end up with. Make sure you put something in the picture for scale, like a coin or somthing. We did an “18 and smmaller” fly swap on here years ago, and I tied something in #18, which was a first and last. As primarily a warm water guy, much below #12 is out of my compfort zone, mainly because I just cant see that small without magnification.
