In the photo he sent I'd say they look like about #18. Yesterday I saw a bunch of similar spinners on a Bemidji area lake. They sure look like what trout fishermen would call tricos, but maybe they are one of the many species of mayflies that are around ---- and because they come off in warm water, ...
A friend took a photo of some timey black bodied mayflies that look a lot like tricos. If I knew how to post a photo I would (need help with that). Are there tricos that hatch in northern Minn in June??
I understand why permithrin might work for ticks -- thay are relativly slow moving and have to walk across the clothes that have been treated, which apparently then kills them.

Katti spoke at our TU chapter meeting last year (Bemidji) and was very interesting and engaging. The extent of the work she has been doing on the north shore is remarkable. Well worth it to stop by and hear her presentation.
I am likely heading to the SE later this week and have been tying some of what I think I might need by way of flies. In case I might be overlooking something, I'm curious what others might consider "must have" flies for this time of year down there. Right now I'm pretty heavy on crane fly nymphs, ha...
