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.

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.
