    Pretty interesting way to tie that first dubbing loop and then doubling it over on itself.

    Dang! That'd be a sick fly for bass!

    or...

    Tie it smaller and it'd be deadly for carp and trout!

    Thanks for sharing that! I like that one.

    I posted some flies I'd tied up that were inspired by Jay (the guy in the video) - and if you play with the amount of dubbing, and the type of thread, you can make some tails that are more supple. Remember though, that these flies are meant to imitate a plastic worm - and your average plastic worm isn't nearly as lively as say, a rabbit strip or gob of marabou. My favorite plastics when I gear fish are Yamamoto Senkos, and when rigged to look like these flies, they have a similar action.

    Once you tie up a couple of these flies, or at least the type of tails - they're actually very quick to do. I will say this though - I don't do Jay's technique of using my fingers for the twisting. I cheat and use a shepherd's hook dubbing loop tool to do the spinning. I bang out a tail in just a couple minutes, and I can tie up a completed worm fly in 5 minutes or so.

    The worms I tied up are more simple than these - I do a furled loop tail, a dubbing loop body to match the tail, and a few turns of soft hackle by the dumb bell eyes, and maybe a few turns of dubbing (simply twisted onto the thread) to cover the dumb bells center.

    I have more tied up that I need to get pix of - some interesting color combos done with some sparkly ice dub material.

    I would have to charge $24.99 plus material cost for those beasts!
    I'm not sure I've seen so many materials and techniques used on a single fly outside of full dressed salmon flies.

    I know right? The whole time I was watching I was thinking hes going to finish it off right here, But then he would do more dubbing or legs. I was sure he was going to run out of room mainly when he got to the last bit of dubbing but he kept finding room!!

    There's a youtube video of some guys fishing for trout using the Gezus Lizards - some FAT trouts eating the things. And of course bass like 'em.

    If spring ever actually arrives - I plan on giving my local bass hell in good measure with these worms - it's one less reason to pack a spinning rod. Now if I could just get myself to stick with a single rod for a day...
