Equipment for Chironomid Fishing in Stillwaters

Sep 12, 2020

Dialling in your equipment for chironomid fishing on stillwaters. 

Welcome to day 3 of 21 Days of Fly Fishing Education on the Fly Fish University podcast!

When I surveyed 800+ anglers from all across North America (and even Europe!), one topic that repeated itself over and over again was that of chironomid fishing in stillwaters. 

I was okay with this, as I've dedicated the past decade to improving my skillset and learning as much as humanly possible on the topic of chironomid fishing. There is something about sending down a fly the size of your pinky fingernail, feeling the line come tight, and watching a gargantuan rainbow clear the water directly in front of you. 

Rather than trying to squeeze the basics of this topic into one episode, I decided to stretch it out over three days. Today is all about equipment, an absolutely crucial area to understand on the topic of successful chironomid fishing. 


 I hope you enjoy, and am excited to continue the journey tomorrow!
