High Water Worm

The High Water Worm is a great choice to use when waters get a little colored up after a bit of rain. It is recommended to tie this one as a point fly in tandem with a heavier bead head nymph. I tie this in a big range of wormy colors like pink, red, orange, brown, tan, and green. The fly combines elements of a cactus egg and a San Juan Worm.
You can use either the standard or the petit size of Estaz. Be sure to leave lots of room behind the eye so that your head does not get crowded.
Hook: Scud or egg hook #8-10
Thread: Brown 6/0
Ribbing: Brassie wire
Tail/body: Ultra Chenille
Underbody: Bone dry
Head: Estaz (petit or standard)

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.
