    Phillip Rowley - Frostbite Bloodworm

    Chironomid larva patterns do not inspire angler confidence. To most, patterns appear nothing more than a small red stick. The Frostbite Bloodworm is no exception to this slender trend.

    Larval or bloodworm patterns are an important stillwater staple and tend to be ignored by many fly fishers who prefer the more familiar scuds, dragon nymphs, leeches and damsel nymphs. With over 2500 species in western North America alone chironomids especially their larval form are one staple that should not be over looked. Larval patterns are ideal the low light conditions of morning and early evening, after a strong wind storm, and when diving birds such as Coots are ferreting through the near shore weed beds. Hanging a larval pattern such as the Frostbite Bloodworm below a strike indicator amongst foraging birds can be deadly as the trout patrol amongst debris-ridden smorgasbord.
