Size #32 Sakasa Kebari

by Jimi Kebari Tsuri

First attempt. I need smaller scissors and smaller vice jaws and yes Chris I do need a magnifying glass. Here's what the first one looks like sans magnifier to see better.

Flip Focals!
by: Chris Stewart

Jimi, after tying on the #32 hooks and trying to thread the tippet through the eyes, I can highly recommend a pair of Flip Focals. They fit on your hat brim, fold out of the way when you are fishing, but make it infinitely easier to thread the tippet through the hook eye. They also provide good magnification for tying. You'll need to adjust your vise or your chair to avoid a sore back from leaning over, though.

You will catch fish on that fly. They might be small, but they'll see it and hit it.

Starling is small enough
by: Chris

Jai, starling feathers from around the upper neck are small enough but I cannot export starling skins. Feathers from almost any small bird would work but check your local regulations. It may not be legal to use them.
