Master the art of tying productive chironomid patterns

Have you ever wondered why it seems that 10% of boats on the lake are landing 90% of the fish? 

This is not by accident, and is simply because some anglers are constantly dialed in to the fly that fish want to eat. With over 2,500 known species of Chironomids throughout the Pacific Northwest, having a wide variety of patterns is essential for catching large, conditioned fish. 

Chironomids account for over 50% of a rainbow trout's diet throughout the open water season, and there are no methods more effective when a chironomid hatch is present. The qualities of productive chironomid patterns include life-like taper, size, shape, and colour to match the natural pupa that are emerging. 

With 7 chapters and over 40 short videos, Chironomid Tying Mastery is a decade worth of dedicated research and development compressed into one online course.
