Bi-Colored Chironomid

tied by CaddisCowboy
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Southwest US,
Material List:

Hook: Dai-Rikki #135 Size 14
Thread: Black UTC 70 Denier
Abdomen: One strand of Small Red Ultrawire and one strand of Brassy Black Ultrawire. (I think using different diameters of wire adds to the segmenting effect.)
Wingcase: Pheasant Tail Fibers treated with UV Knot Sense.
Thorax: Peacock Herl and White Ostrich Herl.
Gills: White Antron Yarn

Tying Instructions: To form the abdomen, twist 3-4 strands of peacock herl and 1 strand of white ostrich herl into a "rope". Wrap the rope around the hook, while maintaining the twist, and tie off behind the bead.
Presentation Tips: Slow hand-twitch or under an indicator.
