AboutThe Gunmetal chironomid can be tied in size 10 thru 18 the 14 is my favorite so that is what I show here. It is very similar to a Canadian fly known as an Anti Static Bag Pupa which is tied with the gray anti static bag that computer parts come in. It imitates a chironomid as its body is filling up with gas in order to ascend the water column and hatch into a winged insect. Twist up few the fish like 'em! As always if you have questions or would like to order flies or materials give us a call at the pro shop. (406) 646-7290 Thanks for viewing! Fred
