BH San Juan Worm

Check out the San Juan Worm in action in Mike's Morgan Run, MD Video -
Check out Mike's Wooly Bugged channel on youtube -
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.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
