Does anyone remember the "puget bug". Old chironomid pattern. One light and two dark moose mane fibers with a peacock herl thorax and a turn of partridge soft hackle, which you could ditch. I remember using size 18's with my buddy Larry on Lenice 30 + years ago and slaying the fish when they didn't want the other stuff. One of the things Larry would do is get in about 4 feet of water, loosen the strap on his insuldri tube and kick back disturbing the bottom and making a chum line to fish in. Worked!
