Demonstration of the tying of the Doubleback Chironomid. Pattern by Greg Scratchley.
This video was taken from a live presentation to the Northern Lights Fly Tyers and Fishers in 2007. Several edits were required to fit into the time frame required by YouTube – however, no steps were altered.
To tie in the gill at the head – strip a few barbules off the base of the Emu feather, and tie in on the top of the head, after completing the wing case.
This is a pretty good indication of the types of demonstrations we offer at NLFTF-TU Edmonton. If you’re in the area – please drop in for a meeting!
