    The recent posts by JohnK sharing his awesome chironomid patterns inspired me to twist up a few before the March Basin lakes opener. I really haven't bothered with tying many 'mids in a few years but I sure like the looks of his stuff.

    TP,

    I can hear the reel screaming right now!

    Looks like you have the trout's breakfast, lunch and dinner all ready for them.

    Well I know I'm late to the thread but just getting going on my tying the last couple weeks. Here's something new I'm working on for this year for chiro's - well new for me anyway - Flash back chiro's in black and green - black and red - maroon and red - even light tan and red.

    With a riffle or chop these should flash when turning, like a chronie but, still have a toned down look from other angles.
