How to Tie a Tak’s Chironomid: Fly Tying Video

Created by Rick Takahashi (Tak) this is a go to still water fly pattern. It has brought me success time and time again in the past. Tied traditionally on a bronze hook the translucent body gives a look that can’t be beat when trying to match the clear tarnish shuck of the Chironomid pupae.
