When fish rise on almost invisible insects, smallest hooks are often suggested but hooking is rather difficult and unsecure. Using slightly bigger hooks gives more results and fish seem to be ready to accept them eagerly. The small dimensions don’t help buoyancy and this fly should be cast in rather calm spots, using very thin leaders.
