Product Information

What is a squirmy wormy one of the most deadly patterns in any ones fly box wherever fish feed on worms 

The Czech fishing union banned the squirmy wormy from competitions after a U.S. team used it to win a European contest.

The USA Youth Fly Fishing Team was using the Squirmy Wormy to win the 2014 World Youth Fly Fishing Championships. In fact, one international team tried unsuccessfully to get the pattern banned from competition.

What is a squirmy wormy?

The squirmy wormy is a fly pattern that originated in the USA and is based on a relatively new material consisting of an incredibly stretchy rubbery substance.

The material is thick, weighty,  and wiggles extremely enticingly. You'll struggle to find a worm imitation anywhere near as lifelike or effective as the squirmy.

Some people think it crosses the line between fly and lure, but it's really just a clinically obese Apps bloodworm. On the right day, it's a really effective pattern to try. 

How do you fish the squirmy wormy?

The squirmy wormy was originally used on rivers in the US for brown and rainbow trout. It's just as deadly in AU and NZ 

Cast it upstream and retrieve the line as the worm trundles back towards you in the current and you'll probably hook up sooner or later. In rivers, I find it works best with a bead to help the material sink a bit better, which also seems to improve the action slightly.

In still waters the squirmy can be fished like a lure - cast it out, let it sink to the bottom and pull it back in small twitches to get the legs moving.

Alternatively, you can, perish the thought, fish it beneath a float. Under the float, you can either leave it bobbing around in the wind or retrieve it with jerky twitches.
