Thumbs up

The above pattern sounds good, but be carefull with the short shank, Chums tend to get a little toothy. Maybe adding a short light wire tippet or a short 40-60 ld. tippet in front of the fly.

Also, most of the Chums I've taken have been on the still portion of the retreave, while the fly is sinking.

We who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.
