The Mud & Blood chironomid is an awesome transition fly for when the bows are taking pupating chironomid larvae. And if anyone has ever told you that there’s no such thin as a red chironomid pupa please check out the picture provided! 🙂 Fish the Mud & Blood near, or even right on the bottom as that is typically where the metamorphosis occurs. The fly’s red butt simulates residual hemoglobin and has proven very effective in enticing trout to strike! A great searching pattern that is always worth having in the fly box! Tied for you the exact same way as for ourselves, on quality 2X hooks, doused in KRAZY glue and available in the three (3) common sizes (#14, #16 & #18).
