Black Sally Chironomid

Many fly tyers prefer to add gills to their chironomids instead of a white bead. A Black Sally is an excellent example of this. A Black Sally is a straight forward pattern to tie. Take a look at how Phil Rowley ties a Black Sally. You definitely want a variety of sizes of this effective chironomid in your lake fly box!
