Default 20 Inch Stonefly and San Juan Worm

The past couple of days I have been tying a few of Charlie Craven's version of the 20 Inch Stonefly:

Here is a San Juan worm that I have been experimenting with using some new material I obtained from Spirit River called "Squirmy Wormies" that I thought was kind of interesting. This stuff has lots of natural movement and feels real soft when squeezed. This should work well during next spring's high flows:
