Size #14 wet flies

These are some smallish wet flies I recently tied up. They are dressed on Mustad size #14 3399 Sproat Bend hooks. I made every effort to maintain the details of the recipes. I have never actually tied up these patterns in this small size before. The heads on these flies are a bit large for the hook and fly size proportions, but the overall length of the fly is about 1/2″. The married tails consist of two barbs, and the wing stripes on the Colonel Fuller and the Trout Fin also consist of two barbs.
