Practising with #32

Hook: TMC 518 #32
Body:  TMC 16/0
Hackle: Smallest hackle from a Whiting Bronze dyed brow

 

I really enjoy the challenge of tying on a #32, here I practice on tying in the smallest hackle feathers I can get of my Whiting cape. To take a idea and bring it down from #12 to #32 challenges both your imagination, your stock of material and your eyesight!

This pattern is one of the simpler to tackle in this size, as long as you can get the hackle small enough.
