This is a great chironomid representation! Great color and form. This fly is a guaranteed killer!

Thanks! The antistatic bag is kind of a pain to tie with but I really like the look of it when its done. The picture really doesn't do the patten justice.
Another great Phillip Rowley pattern..

I'm fairly new to fly tying and this is my first attempt at this pattern.

Can anyone tell I am ready for August and the glory days of dry fly fishing here in the Rockies. Even though I have 4 dozen store boughts already I am tying these for practice.

Size 16 Hi Vis Adams (The talk looks funny because it is wet, it passed the float test) Every dry i tie gets floated before it goes in the box.....no float = razor time

I try to each night after I fish to retie and replace any I lost. Tonight it was an Adams parachute and a Royal Trude. One I left in a tree limb after a missed hook set,,the other,,,,I think demons got it. I unhooked a trout,,,went back and picked up my rod after taking care of my catch..........no fly. Royal Trude just flew off on it's own I guess.......still scratchin' my head over this deal.
