Squirmy Wormy Jig

Here we will be tying the controversial "fly" Squirmy Wormy on a jig hook. Many anglers don't even recognise this one as a fly at all. However the Squirmy is made out of the very flexible Squirmy material and it's very much alive in the water. Then red or pink colour of it remind a bit to normal worms when it gets in the water so I personally don't blame anglers who use it. But I wouldn't either fish with angler who are solely using this pattern. It's a little tricky to tie it as shown in the video but I think most tyers will manage it at the end. The Squirmy catches both brown trout, seatrout, salmon and arctic char here in Iceland. Probably more fish species where they are to be found. I'm personally no fan of this lure, but it's been requested quite a few time by my viewers, so here it is at last.

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.
