Library Video Fly tying Video - Crazy 8 Chironomid

Video - Crazy 8 Chironomid This chironomid pattern was inspired by Chan's Chironomid with its dual set of breathers. I did quite a few experiments at the vise with trying to put the split breathers onto a beaded chironomid fly pattern. Z-lon and Stillwater Solutions Midge Gill were the 2 best materials I found for gills. You can tie the fly with a variety of different thread colors to change the overall look. Just keep in mind that the resin will darken the fly once it gets soaked into the thread and is cured with UV light.
