Interesting... I never used a perdigon bigger then  16.... And olive was the best color for me, but only in Spain. Here, Canada and northern US PT versions work better.

Thank you Alex, for the photos. 

My most successful perdigon this season has been a 16 Butano:  http://www.tacticalflyfisher.com/blog/butano-nymph-fly-tying-tutorial.

Your flies are beautiful, but they have a thicker body than I usually see on perdigons.  Could you explain why you tie them that way?

Alex,  you're welcome and thank you for the video. This is pro for you!

Why the nymphs look bigger?    I tie almost all my nymphs and dries size 12 or 14 which work for me.  There is a limit which one can trust the trout's vision----In a fast torrent I have 8 to 10 seconds and I need to give my nymph visibility....I have fished the Guadeloupe river a couple of times in the past two yrs and it's a different.
p.s. I do fish with light  slinky # 16 only when I am casting downstream.
