Chironomid Fly Pattern - The Ralphy Bomb


With Spring around the Corner, I've been busy researching stillwater patters. A fly swap popped up... what a good opportunity to see what others are fishing.

After some reading, a bit of thought, more reading, a bit more thought... I jetted down to Fish Tech to see Ol' Ralphy. He's always fiddling around with cool ideas, so I picked his brain. Since Ralph's input lead to this fly combo, I'm calling it the "Ralphy Bomb". Yeah, of course I know it's noting new, it's just an alteration of an already existing pattern. But what the hell, that's what I am calling it ; )

I shot a few pics...er...a few 100 pics. I dunno, after going through em' all, this one seemed to catch my eye.

What do you think? Likes/Dislikes... not too worry, I have thick skin ; )
