A similar pattern to the Mosquito Emerger and the Hanging Midge patterns, the CDC Chironomid Emerger is suspended horizontally across the surface of the water to imitate the final emergence of a midge leaving the water for the first time. Tied in larger sizes than most midge patterns, the CDC Chironomid Emerger is an excellent imitation for large still water chironomid species.
