About half of what I tie is for the Juan, the rest are foam hoppers etc.

Just received a new size hook to try out it is a 34!

On the floro-fiber, white and dun seem to be the best. Also try uv-midge flash as a wing on midges, it can really save the day sometimes. Holo-tinsel in red and black can make killer midges!
