    My fiery brown mated with a doochary claret i.e. I can't follow instructions and this hybrid, with a rather long head, was the result....

    Those Chironomid patterns are nice!

    For me, Chan's Chromie is the most effective of the bunch; particularly when fished near the surface. Check in with Joni on chironomid patterns.

    I also like that gnat-like pattern at the bottom. If you use Pearsall's silk for the body and a darker red thread for the underbody, you'll get an almost orange-brown color when the fly is in the water; very close to a natural color.

    What size hook ar you tying on? It looks either quite short or made as a very heavy iron.

    I ask because it's my experience that almost every pattern is harder to tie on a smaller hook. I'd go to a larger hook. I think you'll find that it's easier to get the proportions to work well and you'll have more room to work with each of the materials.

    For learning to tie Salmon flies, I wouldn't go smaller than a 1/0 hook and 3/0 or 5/0 will make things easier still.

    The only thing that you'll run into with the larger hooks is the need to have nice long barbs on your feathers. That shouldn't be a problem, but larger, nicer feathers are harder to source and cost more than their shorter counterparts.

    For fishing, that fly will definitely catch fish. Even with a professionally tied Salmon fly, once you've cast it a few times (sometimes only false casting it a few time; and even with nice open loops), the wing just doesn't look the same.
