Im on the same page as you Coastrider lol, I got a nice wooden fly box 8"x10" so I got a lot of tying ahead of me to fill up that box.

Yes Osprey those double chironies work quite well actually!! Why would a rainbow or cutty want 1 little meal while he can get 2!

I like the doubles you have tied on that swimming nymph hook. I have tied them on straight 3x long nymph hooks and find they perform alright, but not any better than a single chironomid. The double bend might make them more interesting to the fish.

Ya I find that the swimming nymph in #12 and 10's work good for doubles, That added bend in the hook really does the trick!
