30-Minute Fly Art: a Chironomid

Jason Borger went for the “comic-book-style ‘energy blast'” in tying his version of a Chironomid for this week’s 30-Minute Fly Art. (Jeff Kennedy took the more refined route.)
Borger: “When I was in college, I went to fish for British Columbia stillwater trout for the first time. It was a trip filled with big lakes with equally big midges. Nothing quite like fishing a pupa the size of a brown drake nymph (and nothing like the take of a Kamloops ‘bow when it smashes said pupa).”
