Had a request to tie some Sawyer's killer bugs. Generally I tie them in 14's and 16's; I was asked if I could tie some 16's and 18's. Now I've got to say that those size 18 Killer bugs looked ace; small and inconspicuous yet substantially heavy. I have used the same thickness of wire (0.20mm) that I do for all the KB I tie but with a reduced number of yarn layers. I don't think it will make a difference not having the full three layers but I'll await feedback.
I'll save these July and August skinny water fishing, they should do the trick.
