Bass Worm

This isn't the best picture but its a fly that I made up today. I'm sure there are dozens out there like it but I'm not sure that they're made this way. This is a pretty easy way to make a long tail for a worm.

I took a 3/0 salt water hook and tied three pieces of medium sparkly chenille and braided them, leaving a few inches unbraided.

I used my hackle pliers to hold the braid in place while I took the hook out of the vise and put in a fish skull 35mm articulator shank in the vise.

I tied the braid onto the articulator shank and rapped the rest of the chenille to the end of the shank. after tying that down I tied in some orange marabou.

I then went back to the hook, put in some lead wire and tied down some more chenille.

I then formed a body with that using mono as ribbing and adding in some silk legs.

I then tied whip finished my black thread and formed a head with neon orange thread. The fly has great action and is very durable. still working on the weed guard.

Do that up in 'Pink' and it would have Steelhead written all over it.
