Chironomid Fishing Technique & the flybc forum

Chan's Pupa


 “As I stated earlier, when things are right I do feel more involved with my deep water chronomid fishing— retrieving the line up (which can make a big difference) in a smooth, jerky, slow, fast, whatever motion. . . . it keeps me motivated and interested. Don’t get me wrong– I love fishing indicators also and will continue to do so– but deep-sinking-line Chronomid fishing adds a little more “technique” on my part which I thoroughly enjoy. Most of all I love the direct contact with the fish during the take. It is amazing and at times truly heart-stopping…..”
Often, the trout will not take the fly as it is moving, instead they take it about 10 seconds after you stop what-ever motion you are providing. Just about the time you think to yourself “well, there is nothing there this time . . . ” a fish takes hold. If you move it constantly you get a lot less takes than if you move it and rest. Often these resting distances should only be a foot or so apart (about two or three hand twists, or one or two smooth strips). Moving it too far up before resting seems to cause the trout to loose interest.”

This site is a good learning tool for chironomid presentation techniques and for the gathering of information about BC lakes. Register for free and log on and participate. Similar to Ifish.net, the participants have their own clique, but that is to be expected over time, and ok. Much to learn…give as much as you receive…which is true for any forum you enter into.
