Red & Black Diamond Chironomid


Been playing with this pattern for a while know. This pattern has some similarities to the Yankee Buzzer. This was one of the main patterns I was tying at The Fly Fishing Show. A very similar version of this pattern was fished very successful over this last year. This one is tied with Deer Creeks Flies Diamond Hard Tack Free UV Resin. This is the only UV resin that is truly take free after hitting it with the torch. Counting the days to ice off at some of my favorite still waters.
