    Gee. I was considering taking up chironomid fishing but after reading this thread, I am not certain that I am smart enough to master it.

    Forget this chironomid stuff, I'm not smart enough for it. Nope... I'm switching over to nightcrawlers and marshmallows.

    I do not have a pattern for tying marshmallows. Guess I am sunk there also.

    But you have one for a nightcrawler?! I have to see that! You might be on to something there.

    I do not have a picture of it, but it is a strip of red Chenille with a burgandy thread band in the middle.

    Barbless of course.

    I am not very clever in my imagination.

    Just say no to swivels!!! It ultimately leads to a life of heartbreak and despair. Eventually even your own family gives up on you:(
