Fulling Mill make a nice barbless 1x dry fly hook but it only goes down to a #20

Does anyone know if any manufacturers make any smaller?

I would look at japan, its where I got some exceeding small hooks way back,via a friend who played Violin with the RPO on world tours .
the tinies we got were barbed but such small barbs hardly had any effect.
