The new size 32's are larger that they were in the past.
Mustad use to have a hook, size 32 that was about the size of .5 lead from a mechanical pencil with about one click long.
Hille's has a chart of all the original mustad hooks.

For tying really small flies (< #24) I suggest using the TMC 2487. It’s fine wire with a 3x wide hook gape in the smaller sizes, and is 2x short. The wide gape makes it easier to tie and better at holding on to fish. They make it down to a size #30, and 2x short makes it equivalent to a #32 hook shank length. Good luck.
