Video How To: The McChironomid

Video How To: The McChironomid

By: Jeremiah Houle  — 

Chironomids are a huge food source for trout in most lakes, especially here in Central Oregon. This pattern utilizes a transparent body material that when tied over white thread creates a pop and translucence seen in the real bug.  The ice dubbing collar is a strong alternative to peacock and delivers a little sparkle to get the fishes’ attention. Make sure this is in your lake box this season!
