If you read my last post "I just had to laugh", it's obvious that I need to change my way of thinking. I've never fished with Chironomids, and was wondering if anyone here would be willing to give me a few "basic" pointers on where to start. I've been fishing for a while now, so I understand the concept, but I just don't know the depths, colors and type of indicator to use. This is what I do know (I think), but obviously feel free to correct me. They "typically" come out of the mud red or brown, get darker as they near the surface, and finding the feeding lane is the big trick. I should stay away from indicators that are like the 'Thingamabobber'. I need to know: What colors should I start out with (it seems that there are now 10 bazillion different ones out there now - and 10 more were just invented as I typed this...), what sizes, and at what depth should I start at? I would greatly appreciate any help!
