Silkworm Chironomid Assortment
The Silkworm Chironomid was designed by Darren MacEachern for fishing stillwater lakes and ponds in search of trout, perch, grayling and other pan fish. It represents the larval / pupal stage of midges which make up a considerable percentage of a fish’s diet in lakes. The fly is tied on Mustad Signature C49s hooks and uses brass beads. The body is made of a glow in the dark material which makes it exceptionally great at fishing darker waters. The fly works well when a strike indicator is floated above it on the line, allowing the fly to move gently with the surface motion of the water. I’ve used this fly with great success on many lake fishing days and it has been productive, and out fishing many other patterns. It’s saved me from a skunked day many times. This fly is an absolute must have for shallow (30 feet or less) stillwater fishing. The fly comes in sizes 10, 12, 14 and 16. Colours include blue, white, yellow, green, orange and pink. The fly can be charged with sunlight or a flashlight. Allow the fly to be charged for several minutes before fishing with it.
The 24 fly assortment includes 6 colors, blue, white, yellow, green, orange and pink bodied flies. These are tied on Mustad C49S hooks with white brass beads. The assortment includes 4 of each color in one size.
