Red Bead Liquid Fusion Crystal Chironomid Fly Tying Video

Chironomid fly fishing continues to grow in the lakes of North America. Many of the patterns have a “see through” “opaque” quality that is hard to achieve with standard materials. In this video Barrett demonstrates how to use Liquid Fusion on the body of a Chironomid pattern. The relatively quick setting Liquid Fusion adds depth and life to Chironomid Patterns. Try it on Copper Johns, Poxy backs and stonefly nymphs as well.
