Fly of the Week: Squirmy wormy Hook: SE3 #10 or #12 Bead: 1/8 black Thread: Red 8/0 or match the color of the worm Body: Squirmy wormy We had many a request for this pattern last season, so we brought in the materials for a worm pattern. The Euro nymph guys love worms as other nympher's do. It's effective after a rain washes worms in the rivers. They come in arrange of colors but we carry Red, Pink and Tan. You can tie this on a heavey scud hook or change it to a Euro Nymph hook with a slotted bead. There are some tricks to tying this so come into the shop and ask.
