Chubby Chernobyl Fly Tying Video Instructions

Chubby Chernobyl Fly Tying PatternThe Chubby Chernobyl is a great hopper and stonefly fly pattern.  The Chubby Chernobyl incorporates just the right amount of flash, movement, float ability, profile and bugginess to make it one of the best large dry fly patterns in the West!  The Chubby Chernobyl can be tied in many different colors and imitate a wide variety of stonefly species and grasshoppers.  The large yarn wings make the Chubby Chernobyl easy to see and also allow for the Chubby Chernobyl to right high and absorb large amounts of floatant.  If you are heading west, then make sure you have some “Chubbies” in your fly box!
