    This Blood Worm thread gave me an idea for a cartoon so I came up with a rough and sent it to the editor of FFM. He likes it so now I gott'a color the sucker. Thanks for the idea!
    (Now you know why I really hang around this place as much as I do :) -- and no... you won't receive a by-line credit nor any $$ for the idea :p )

    I have no idea when they'll use it. Sometimes the cartoons get bumped if they have additional advertisers for the issue. Yes, said to say but the cartoons are expendable crew members :) They pay for them up front so they use them when they'll fit.

    Yeah, I have a couple nice little san juan worms in my box... they work great. But it's not often that I fish bait ;) hehehe.

    By the way, if you're going to be using "technical" terms larva is the singular form and larvae (pronounced "lar-vee") the plural.

    Try puffer ball material with a rubbery squirmy wormy purchased at the 1$ store. There is a fly tying material company (that I forgot who) that supplies this material that can be found in your local fly shop. You can purchase in red and also green, and perhaps glow-in-the-dark.

    Weird... I just ordered some red tubing to use to tie blood worms. I've also ordered some red rubber leg material to experiment with.
