Chironomid Fly Fishing Strategies

Brian Chan does an excellent job explaining fly fishing strategies and the life cycle of Chironomids. In this stillwater instructional series, put on by Go Fish BC, we take a close look and learn more about this important trout food source. Brian describes the Chironomid's fishable life cycle from larvae aka bloodworm to pupa & adult and explains how to effectively imitate each stage. This includes everything from retrieve techniques, knots and proper fly line setup so you can be successful on the water.
