The Blood Chirnomid
The Blood Worm is present in almost every Stillwater and is an everyday meal for trout. The bloodworm will be in different parts of the water column depending on time of day and year. The bloodworm is best fished under an indicator or on a slow sinking line. Both should be fished with a slow retrieve to imitate these bugs making their way to the surface to hatch. It is a simple tie and can be very effective in the early months after ice off.
