I tied mine in 18 and 20 on TMC2487.

I've been tying some SOS's on a dai riki #125 ranging from an 18 down to a 22, and they were killer yesterday on the Big T. I tried tungsten vs glass bead too, and did much better on the tungsten. Size 20 fished behind a 2 bit hooker and an egg got fish, and they only ate the SOS.

Those Higa SOS's I did were an 18 or 20 with a fairly large silver tungsten bead. I don't think the tungsten is helping my case since I wanna use it as a dropper off a dry, and its just so damn heavy. But that's my fault.

Can't speak for bugz...

For me its time to restock the midge box so I'll be addressing that over the coming weeks... Hard to stomach that in the fall you go from nice big goofy flies like leeches, streamers, san juans, eggs, and then December hits and everything you're fishing with is sub #20.

Ah, looks like he's got his winter coat - nice and fuzzy for dubbing.

He is a sweet heart too. Did not even kick me when I pulled hair out of his tail today!

Finally knocked the dust off the vice last night....as you can see I started simple!

Going to be fishing around Basalt this weekend, my goal is to whip up a bunch of baetis/midge imitations as well as a smaller streamer or two.

It was awesome! I have never fished that area so, like always, I wish I could have spent another day or two to really dial it in.

My buddy caught a couple in the 18"+ range, I caught a few browns in the 16" range. Crowds weren't an issue at all and I was surprised to see a fair amount of BWO's coming off with fish charging the surface after them even with the sunny conditions.

Wish I would have moved a bit more but there is wayyy too much water to cover in that area in 1 month, let alone 1 day.

Mine were taken on rs2/juju emergers patterns, threw on a steamer for about 20 minutes and turned some heads and missed a couple takes...in hindsight I wish I would have stuck with it longer because it is so much easier to cover water effectively and move on to the next likely holding area.

It definitely got me excited to be back on the vice!
