Fly Tying Tutorial and tying kit for the Chubby Chernobyl
Mike was able to put together another fly tying tutorial for you. This month’s video shows you a summertime classic. The Chubby Chernobyl. The classic fly that looks part stonefly, part hopper and part giant foamy thing. Regardless of its blurred identity it works on waters all over the West.
