The Ice Cream Cone Chironomid is a go-to still water pattern in many areas. If there is a prolific midge hatch while fishing a lake or reservoir be sure to try this pattern out.
It has a brilliant white bead to imitate the chironomid gills and micro tubing to give excellent segmentation.
I like to fish this pattern tandem with a leech imitation on a midge tip or slow sink tip fly line. Once you find the right depth count your fly down and wait for the slam of the fish!
