You know, Kurt, at work we used magnifier lamps - the ones with a big magnifying glass ringed with a flourescent bulb on a flexible stand - to sort tiny benthic inverts from the debris we collected. I suppose I should invest in one of those and then perhap I can also aspire to tie size 20 Royal Wulffs as well. My eyes alone just won't allow it and I'm only 47!!

Very nice. The Royal Wulff is probably my all-time favorite attractor fly. It works well on my "natal" fly-fishing stream, the Maple River in northern MI. Brookies just love 'em!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Wow what a thread. I was attending a fly tying class last week and the Instructor said he got out fished four to one on of the streams I frequent on the difference between a size 20 and a size 18. Sometimes it is great to have the exact right thing and other times I go out and catch fish on four or five different flies in all types of water.
