From the vise thread, here are some 20s.
CDL Tail
Stripped Quill Body
Dubbed throrax
congo hair post
medium dun hackle

Maybe Im just used to fishing small flies on a spring creek, but they really dont feel all that small.
I have some 22 hooks will do the same, but I'll skip the dubbed thorax and just do a thread thorax.

Cool! So where do you plan on fishing these EmergingFisher?
Very good question! Probably hit a smaller river in the Cascades, dropped under something, maybe behind a soft hackle or they may work under a small dry. I did a few quill body dries a week or so again but smallest was an 18 so that doesn’t count for this thread

I'm out. I think I fished sz. 18 Griffith's a couple days, and sz. 16 Stone dry's a couple times last winter, but pretty much everything is 14 and bigger, and usually an 8 or 10. I don't think I could tie anything that small, and my smallest hook is an 18 anyways.
