Closed ! Chironomid Swap 16 or smaller Spring 2011 Closed!

Now that I have finished with the Winter Lake swap and slobbered all over some of the chironomid patterns, it is time for me to host a Spring chironomid swap. Now as a tied in the wool indicator watcher I'm not at a loss for patterns or bugs but for the most part I tie most of mine in size 14 and 12 so I'd like to fill in my size 16 and smaller slots so all these bugs for this slot need to fit into that category.

If there is an overwhelming response, I will host 2 or if there is a huge response for over size 16 I'll host an over 16 swap as well.

Due by February 24th so everyone can fish them on the March 1st opener.
Everyone ties 2 of the same bug for a total of 26 bugs.
Limited to 14 tiers. GET TYING Please remembert to tag your flies and send a self addressed envelope either prestamped or you can send some other form payment. Luckily I was only out like two bucks the last swap but someone sent me a couple extra flies so that made up for it.

I'd love to join, though I admit I haven't done many chironomids. I'll post a pic of what I'm tying to make sure its alright before pumping more out.

I would like in if there is still a slot open :) Only thing I have tied so far are bloodworms. I have talked with Scottflycst a bit on them, and have an I idea I want to tie. I want a mostly clear body with a sparse underlying colors kind of like this

I fished last week and the trout were full of these glassworms. I wonder what material would be best suited to use to imitate these bad boys...

You could use clear glass seed beads. I tied some with 4X and put a black end with a sharpie, didn't like them, didn't fish them. Phil Rowley said "when the fish are eating ghost midges, put on a big leech!"
