These flies are perfect for our small streams across VA. In fact, these are one of my (Ethan) favorite patterns. The bead really stands out and helps fish pick it out of current or fast moving water.
They are tied on a curved shank hook so a sz. 6 may sound enormous, but it's probably closer to an 8 than a 6 - that's true of all the sizes. An eight is probably my most used size.
If you fish small streams in VA you will want these in your box!
