Fish till ya drop. Then suck it up and fish the evening hatch. I noticed in the last "BC Outdoors" that an article on chironomids shows every pattern with a Partrige Straight Eye Hook. I have often thought myself that chironomids on straignt eye scud and straignt eye nymph hooks "hang a more natural vertical". Does anyone else share this opinion? Phil Rawley seems to have gone to all Partridge GRS15ST hooks in his tying of chronies,but I still see many patterns tied on turned down eye hooks. I fooled around with pliers and discovered you can carefully convert your turned down eye hooks to straight eye. How many think this is worth the effort? How many use straight eye hooks for their chironomids? What are your favorite hooks for tying Chronies?
