Default One for Frank { uk amber worm }

Sorry for the poor quality of pic. , but here we have a lethal uk stillwater pattern.
Our trout hit these patterns HARD...... varient colours, olive, red and pink are good, black and other somber colours are used but not as effective for us.

The movement in the water is un-real.


Body. 6x amber seed beads { glued in }.
Legs. Amber flexi floss..... 2x front, 4 x centers, 2x rear.
Hook. Fulling Mill short shank 6. nickel.
Butt. Red glo-brite floss.

Fred.

Fred: You have some real unusual stillwater patterns, I'm going to tie a few up and try on our local lakes next spring! Our water is all frozen at the moment.

Fred,

Welcome to the forum.

That amber worm looks like a great fly. I can see how the fish would hit it hard; I suspect a lot of motion from those legs; even on stillwaters, and good reflection off the multiple beads.

How are you attaching the front and rear legs (middle legs are clear from the pic). Thanks.

Pocono

J-P, when in Paris, I'd rather spend an evening at Crazy Horse, than a week at either the Moulin Rouge or the Lido! No yellow card from me; just some cultural acceptability differences between countries; all part of the mix as far as I'm concerned.

Hi Pocono,

Take 2x approx. 3inch lengths of flexi-floss, simply feed them through the seed beads, { all the beads can be looped onto the flexi-floss in one go, say via a small bit of wire etc } then slip over the hook point and run bead up to hook eye. I like to just feed one on at a time and superglue it in place. Just a point with the center legs, leave a gap after your third bead to place the first center leg over the hook shank with an overhand knot, place a dot of glue { i use cocktail sticks } to the downside of the knot, then gently secure via fouth bead. Finish fly then go back to center leg by adding another strand of flexi floss, again using over hand knot. Add a dot of super glue on top of knot to secure. Leave to dry, place hook in vice, hold all legs up together, then cut, should leave all legs level.

Fred.

Thanks Fred. That's a big help. I'm definitely going to give that pattern a try. One more question - where do you get the amber beads?
