    Default Bloodworm

    Was fishing one of the local stillwaters early last year and the only guy catching was useing one of these. Worked his way around the fishery taking fish where everyone had been strugling for hours.Its the only bloodworm type fly that i've found works on my locals or else i'm fishing the others wrong In the summer i use this with an orange tail and head that works well.



    Hook: Kamasan B110
    Body: Plumbing tape used here
    Rib: Any wire of choice bronze used here
    Head: Red glo bright floss
    Tail: Red marabou

    Step 1: Start thread and tie in the marabou


    Step 2: Tie in rib


    Step 3: Take a strip of plumbing tape and cut at an angle


    Step 4: Tie in the plubing tape and wrap up the body


    Step 5: Rib the fly with the wire and then whip finish and cut off thread


    Step 6: Catch in the glo bright and build a head to the fly then whip finish and cut off


    Step 7: Pinch the marabou to size and give the head and body a couple of coats of varnish and thats you

    They are as daft as a brush good fun watching them. The female likes to climb up and fall asleep on the back of you're neck.

    Was at Middleton last year the guy was using it under an indicator and was doing realy well. I found it works well at Skelmorlie and lawfield. I fish it dead drift.

    Thinking on breeding mine next year see how they go over the winter. I like the leos you get some cracking morphs with them. Might just be image shack thats playing up mate it does that sometimes with the pictures.
