    I wish I'd seen this post earlier. I just did my first Chironomid Fishing at pass lake this last weekend. Not going to be my favorite for fly fishing as I really enjoy casting, but for the winter why not.

    I'm with you Trout Master and Ira, chironomids are a blast to fish! If you think it's boring, you're not doing it right. I'd rather catch 6 fish on chironomids under an indicator than 12 fish on buggers any day!!

    You can also fish buggers, leeches, micro leeches, phesant tails, etc., under a bobber. Had a killer day on leeches fished this way a couple years back on a basin lake.
