    This one is mine. I call it the monomid. Photographs don't really do it justice. The mono thread gives it a holographic look that nothing else can quite duplicate. At one angle it looks red and another it looks green.

    Your fly is awesome! This is one of the best looking chironomid patterns I have seen. I just have a couple questions. What is mono thread and can you pick it up anywhere? Also it sounds like it is just wound over a black base of thread. Thanks for sharing such an awesome pattern!

    Thanks. Mono thread is just monofilament line, wrapped on a thread spool. The red stuff is hard to find. I got mine at Kauffman's some time ago, but I'm not sure if they still carry it. I'm sure you can find it online if you do a search. If that doesn't work, send me a PM. I might be able to help you out.
