This first pattern is simple red thread over wrapped with 0.5 mm Stretch Magic to see if I could add a little flash:

The second pattern is red thread over wrapped with red sili leg material and an orange crystal flash rib then coated with CCG.

Now to give them a try to see if they work worth a hoot!

Kelly: Thanks, that is where I got the idea of using the Krystal Flash ribbing on the prototype blood worms I tied. I'm going to try some of the Gut Bomb bloodworms, I just need to order some of Rainy's Stretch Flex material.
