The first anniversary of Ed Koch's death is this July. I'll spend the month "Fishing the Midge"
in his honour.
TMC 200R (Daiichi 1270 has a big-eye which makes the last steps a little easier to control)
Uni Trico 17/0
Stripped peacock quill
Goose biots, tan
Uni pearl mylar, #16
Take thread down the shank level with the barb, pinched of course. You can see how fine the Trico thread is, ideal for tying small.
