BH San Juan Worm

The San Juan Worm is a simple fly that can be tied a number of ways. The method I'm presenting here will give you a fly that is not only really great at catching trout but is durable enough for catching a lot of them. The San Juan has spawned a number of variations including the now infamous Squirmy Wormy.

I Tie this fly in reds, pinks, orange, tan, brown and a couple shades of green. It is an excellent early season fly for creeks and streams and also works in dirty water after a rainy spell.

Thanks to Mike for the additional footage and photos.
