Olive Silver/Black Rib Chironomid Fly Tying Video

A well-stocked chironomid box is a great thing to have coming into the Stillwater season. This gives you the best possible chance to “match the hatch” while out on the lakes. Watching that indicator dip under the surface as another hungry trout hits your fly as it is suspended in the water column never gets old! If you take a throat sample of one of your fish and you see some gas filled olive pupa, this would be a great fly option to tie on!
