Title: squirmy wormies
Post by: fishfinder on April 14, 2015, 09:08:06 PM
I'm experimenting with squirmy wormies. They are very elastic and they Have a lot of motion in the water. The ones pictured resemble a San Juan worm style with lead wire around the hook for added weight and a bead head.Not perfect but I'll get the hang of it. I have a few ideas in my head for different patterns.(http://i1144.PB.com/albums/o496/mailman77/20150414_205725.jpg) (http://s1144.PB.com/user/mailman77/media/20150414_205725.jpg.html)(http://i1144.PB.com/albums/o496/mailman77/20150414_211347.jpg) (http://s1144.PB.com/user/mailman77/media/20150414_211347.jpg.html)(http://i1144.PB.com/albums/o496/mailman77/20150414_215208.jpg) (http://s1144.PB.com/user/mailman77/media/20150414_215208.jpg.html)(http://i1144.PB.com/albums/o496/mailman77/20150414_213021.jpg) (http://s1144.PB.com/user/mailman77/media/20150414_213021.jpg.html)

Hey pretty cool, I've never seen those before.  Nice ties.  Looking at them makes me imagine threading one up the hook shaft similar to a Texas rigged rubber worm.  Instead of tying it to the hook in the middle, like a streamer style or wooly bugger.  Then you'd have "crawly wormie"  lol   tying them in the middle reminds me of a wacky rigged worm.

Thanks HD. I came across theseafter watching a few YouTube videos, they are very versatile. Seems like you can't go wrong with any pattern you tie. One I do want to tie is one similar to what your speaking of...a small piece of wormy towards the bend of the hook with dubbing body and a bead head.
