John I use either poly yarn or cdc on most of my midge/chrono patterns in this manner. Pretty standard around here for lake guys. It does a good job of imitating the gills on the chronos.

One thing I missed on the pattern (which I forgot to do in the pick as well) is to coat the body with clear nail polish or something similiar. Creates a nice sheen and makes the pattern a lot more durable.
