The Chip is a basic micro-bugger that is tied with no other pretense but to catch fish. Primarily a warm-water pattern in my box, it has also accounted for more trout than it should have. My box always has a few in it regardless of the water I am fishing, and it has saved my day in some of the most unlikely places.
