Seems like lots of people wanna know whats the smallest... well.... any smaller and my sausage fingers wont be able to tie anything on. ... so whatever, here's my first fly tutorial... the Rusty Jones.
three wraps of really fine Benecchi's was all i used to tie on. (keep it light!)
Cut off right at the black. I then pulled back on the feather, and tied it in with two wraps. With a needle, i gently coated the new body with super glue, right to the thread wraps.
I forgot to take a photo of dubbing. sorry. go with ultra fine rusty muskrat belly. I made 4 tight turns up, did a figure 8 over some ultra fine flash to form wings.
I then tied in a small grizzly hackle with two more turns.
And... one more shot of sausage fingers.
probably gonna be a cinch to tie onto some 12x. ha
