Aquatic Worm

Aquatic Worm

Wrap thread onto hook shank. Attach the body material with 3 to 5 tight wraps of thread. Continue to wrap thread around the body material from the base of the tail to the front end of the body. This makes an even underbody foundation.

Aquatic Worm

Wax thread with a light coat of wonder wax. Apply a thin amount of dubbing. Spread dubbing fibers out evenly on thread. Twist dubbing evenly on thread with thumb and forefinger.

Aquatic Worm

Wind dubbing to form a hump in the body at 2/3 point of hook shank.

Aquatic Worm

Evenly wind on the larva lace in back of and in front of the dubbing hump. Secure with 5 tight thread wraps.

Aquatic Worm

Whip finish head with 4 to 8 turns. Pull tag end firmly and cut off excess thread. Place a drop of head cement on knot and allow it to penetrate both the thread base and lace stems.

Simple fly that imitates aquatic worms. I like to tie it on a curved hook because it twists like it's alive when drifted about a foot off the bottom. Other colors are effective. Collect some samples in your local water and match their coloration and size.
