Thanks for the feedback. This was based on the first video I looked at. I've ordered some scud hooks to try my hand at some more traditional San Juan worms. I'll give the orange a try.durangopipe wrote: ↑Sun Sep 09, 2018 12:53 pmYeah, it might.
If much too long you can sometimes get short strikes.
Also, I like to tie them with the material hanging off of both the front and the back of the hook. That way, I feel, they wiggle on both endsmore like a real worm and seem to appear less connected to a leader.
Sometimes, in larger sizes, they work really well tied with orange thread and a band of the orange thread in the middle that both holds the material to the hook, and looks like a clitellum.
Or don’t bother.
Worms are deadly in most water.
And few flies are as simple to tie.
In my experience most takes on a worm imitation are pretty strong.
I figured there was a lot of flexibility with worms. My grandson has the most unorthodox approach to using soft baits I've ever seen and usually out fishes me.
