Charlie Has Worms

Charlie's Got Worms! Well, my Crazy Charlie got mixed up with a Squirmy Wormy. I ordered some sea anemone aquarium decorations to play around with. I like this material as it has some incredible stretch and doesn't cut too easily with thread. I use 6/0 thread and haven't had any slice through. The material has a good stretch and is really durable. The hardest part of the fly is getting the tentacle to sit right. Make sure to tie into the bend and have a look at the tail before you commit to it.

So, the pattern came to me not long ago while tying an order of Squirmy Worrmy flies for a client. I found the aquarium sea anemone while searching for more worms and thought it would be worth a try. http://amzn.to/2D2EVgI - (Amazon affiliate link) there are a few different colors, orange, pink, purple, green, yellow and blue.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
