A friend of mine (or I thought he was!!!!!) gave me some size 32 hooks YES 32!!! and challenged me to tie a fly on one. Well I am always up for a challenge. I lost 3 hooks on the floor trying to get one in the vise!
Well here it is a size 32 dry pheasant tail in the picture is a size 14 hook to show comparison
No before anyone asks I will not tie you two dozen........... hammer

No problem Mike, I only need one dozen of them. roflmao

You've done better than I have with them. I got a box of those hooks several years ago off a clearance rack. That box has never been opened....


Nice job!

A dozen Royal Coachmen will be fine. roflmao

Hey, will you still be around on Sunday at the Expo? Not sure if I will make into the Expo hall on Fri or Sat, unless the casting park gets washed away like the rest of the state...

roflmao He had it displayed at the Expo. He actually had to point the hooks out to me. No way I could get them tied on.

The nice thing about those tiny hooks is that you can't put much on them, so the flies are simple to tie. I've tied and fished size 32s with good success on the San Juan, though these days the Juan seems to require nothing smaller than a 24, with 18s to 22s the norm.
