So I understand that there are small sulphurs on the South Holston. How small are they? I took a guess and whipped up a few small "exploding sulphur nymphs". Are these in the ballpark?

Hook: Tiemco 2488 2x small curved hook
Thread: Camel
Tail: Pheasant Tail
Body: Rusty turkey biot
Thorax: Brown trigger nymph with a little pale yellow UV Ice Dub ball on top
Legs: Phesant tail

Take Care,
Timbros.

I've heard of folks catching fish on sz20 sulfur dries, but don't know whether they're that small or not...my guess on smallest there would be 18, I'm sure someone on here has a more educated answer on that one.

Reminds of the 'splitcase nymph' that is popular in this area.

Should slay 'em.
