    I was thinking about tying a variation of Brian Chans frostbite chironomid. Should be fun

    I'll PM the others on the list to make sure it's cool with them to tie 26 versus 18 so don't send yet but at this point plan on tying 26 and if you only need to tie 18 well then you've upped your own box count.

    Cool I'm half way done. My kid asked me what I was tying, told him black and pearl mids. He says oh capt. jack sparrows(name of the ship was black pearl in the movie) I thought that was abit long so CJ'S it is.

    Mine are done and will be in the mail soon. These catch lots of fish-they are a stillwater killer and also work great on spring creeks as well. Looking forward to trying the other patterns.

    Mine are tied and packaged. They'll go out in today's mail. They are the ones with red flashabou body with silver wire ribs, white bead. I tell you this because I couldn't bend my mind around tagging 26 of those little bastards. Sorry.
