Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing tiny glues is much easier Hesitant to fish tiny flies because it's such a pain to feed the tippet through the eye? Not a problem with the Orvis big eye hooks. I tried these during the Fall, when I needed to tie and fish size 20, 22 and 24 parachute style dry flies on 6X-8X tippets. If you can tie on a size 16 fly, I'm betting you can start fishing the small stuff when the conditions arise. The hooks are sharp and sized appropriately. Catching a late season trout on a small fly is an experience to savor and these hooks address the challenge of tying them on your tippet. I can't help you with playing the fish on light tippets but after you hook a few I'm sure you'll figure it out. Tight lines!
