1.) Q- I've been asked to clarify any fly tying/size restrictions.

"A- You can use apps with one bead or no beads. Any length of flies, but no snakes a single hook only. Performed rubber is to stop anyone getting a rubber maggot or worm and putting a hook through it. Hook size no minimum size , but nothing bigger than an size 8.
