Small-Fly Stand

For the Swedish Fly Fair this weekend I have put together a collection of smaller flies.
Here's one for the stand:

Green Fly (Aphid) #30


Hook: Varivas 2300 Ultra Midge #30
Thread: Hends Synton, green
Wing: Funky Fibre, grey
Legs: Squirrel

For an idea of size; the #30 aphid on a 5 pence piece:
