Here’s a quick video of Nate fly fishing with our jig squirmy wormies after a rainfall.
Perhaps no fly has taken over angling quite like the squirmy worm. The motion of the squirmy material drives trout crazy, and combining that with a jig hook and tungsten bead makes this pattern even deadlier. While the effectiveness of the squirmy is documented everywhere, it’s especially productive in pocket-water freestone streams. It’s perfect to use trailing behind a chubby chernobyl or hopper in those tiny little slicks and pockets behind a boulder. The length of tippet between the dry and squirmy can be altered based on the depth of water being fished, but generally the squirmy works great when it’s fished in the middle half of the water column, allowing maximum range of movement for the tail.
If there are trout in a water odds are they will eat a squirmy worm. Use this pattern in high water conditions as well as right on the banks, where aquatic worms might naturally fall into the stream. It also serves as an excellent trailing fly in a mini nymph rig as it plays up and down throughout the water column.
Red, Pink, Chartreuse, Earth Worm
When the bite is slow I throw on the squirmy wormy and pretty much always get some action. These are also very durable, the flies hold up even after dozens of eats.
The gill is my first fish on a fly rod. Went out the first time and lost one and one bit in half. So I bought 8 more and caught a few gills and learned to sometimes get the fly in the water. Today I caught crappies one after another suspended in 18' of water. Give it four stars only because the gills like to bite off the tail, twice today.
High quality flies. The Fly Crate provides superior flies for a great price. These flies are as good or better than high dollar flies I have purchased at high end fly shops. I would highly recommend The Fly Crate.
Used below dam on San Juan. Brown after brown hook up! Gets deep fast to the bigger fish. Rugged pattern, never miss hooks.
