Hey! I tied some of these this morning using exactly the same materials except I tied them on size 14 Gamakatsu scud hooks.
I haven't had much luck using the bigger hooks for chiros (size 10).
Funny thing is, I've never heard of the "Zucchini chiro" and just tied them on a whim.
Go to

flyguys.net bc flyfishing foroum for lotsa chironomid patterns & video of the Zucchini fly tying

Flies arrived in the mail today. Thanks to all participants and to Crawad for organizing again. Now just have to wait for open water! Likely another 3 months in this neck of the woods, less if they still let us into BC.
