Demo: Greg Scratchley / Imitative Chironomids

Community Calendar

Event details


Tyer: Greg Scratchley


Pattern: Imitative Chironomids


Note: Scratch was short on details, but he did say he’ll deal with larvae, pupae and adults. I suspect he’ll be using a range of materials and hooks to create a variety of patterns that are closer to the naturals than the typical bits of wire and plastic. Either that or he’ll fake it.


Beginners Session #10


Pattern: Adams

Hook: Tiemco 101 - #14 to #18

Thread #8/0 Gray or Black

Wing White turkey flat

Tail: Grizzly hackle fibers

Body: Gray Anton dubbing

Hackle Mixed brown and grizzly hackle


Comment: This is a generic may fly imitation. Often used as a searching pattern for rises to unknown insects. But don’t ever use it on grayling




Note From RB: There is a REASON Scratch was short on details. You don't wanna miss this one! I've seen this NEW "KILLER KROMNOMIDGUSSES" it's HAWESOME! To be released FIRST to the members of NLFT&F. My hat is off to Scratch on this one.. and my carpet where the original prototype lays someplace. This patten is gonna slay them at Muir Lake this year! :whootwhoo:


PMS - To the NOOB's.. you don't want to watch Dave teach you how to tye an Adams. Watch this KILLER DEMO instead tonight (seeing as only two of you came out to my RBE demo) to see how you can EVOLVE as a TYER by paying attention to BUGS!


PPMS - There did I hype it up enough for you buddy!?
