Lemon Lime Chironomid Pupa

A Lemon Lime Twist

Lemon Lime Chironomid Pupa
Over the past few years, I've noticed more lime and chartreuse chironomid pupa from the samples I've taken, so I've incorporated the color scheme into my regular lineup of chironomid patterns.

This specific lemon lime color goes a little extreme on the brightness, since the thoraxes are technically not going to be this bright chartreuse. But I've fished with other types of patterns that incorporate this specific chartreuse colored bead with great success, so it's definitely a confidence color.

So even though you might not see bugs this specific color, it's worth a try and can even be a great searching pattern.
