Default Cinder worm hatch Rhode Island

Just seeing if anyone else has done this before. This is my first time we are going down the first weekend in May. Staying in a cabin I guess that an old timer rents out, my uncle went last year and he set this up. Pretty excited I you tubed it and it looks like a blast. Anyone else on here go before? What do I need to bring other than the obvious??

Bring lots of different styles of the cinder worm flies. The stripers can be pretty choosy. Using droppers will help determine what's working.
The worms themselves are in constant movement and kinda spin around in circles. A dead drift or a normal retrieve can not imitate what the naturals are doing. It's quite a challenge.
I highly suggest that you attend the US Fish and Wildlife sponsored Cinder Worm Workshop at the Ninigret Refuge. It's free but prior registration is required.
There's 2 nights of instruction and tying and a third night of fishing beginning the end of this month.

The Rhody salt ponds isn't the only place that you'll find a worm hatch.
Any place with a mud flat is a good place to look. It happens mostly on moon tides, but for some reason different flats have different cycles.

Great thread, don't recall ever reading a reference to 'Cinder Worms.' Sigh ... another Google search.

Bears den has a couple patterns they stock I believe. They are VERY simple to tie. If you tie your own flies let me know and I will link you to my friends site which shows some very productive cinder worm patterns as well as gives a ton of info about fishing the "hatch".
