    Hook. kamazan red, standard 10, or a nickel 10's fine.
    Legs. Blood red flexi-floss.
    Body. Glo-brite no.5 floss.
    Rib. Blood red flexi-floss.
    Thread/head. Uni 8/0 wine.

    Give it a try
    Be happy

    Nice blood worm. Thanks for the recipe. I'm having a tough time visualizing how/what makes the white segments.

    The segmented effect would be from ribbing the glo-brite with the flexi-floss? Is that what we see there? I love the pattern and will be fishing it up here.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    Through winter i fish a dark pink, gold bead version on the point, with two legs to front and two to rear, 7ft up the leader i'll fish this app's. It's a great searching rig. from figure of eights to slow long draws, trout over here love them
