The ordinary trout flies are tied on numbers 6, 8 and 10 hooks, as a rule. A No. 8 Sneck or Sproat hook is about right for general use. Midge flies as small as the English dry flies are also made in this country and these are very successful in small streams, where the fish are small and shy. They are of the more somber colored patterns as a rule.
