    you can get jelly rope in bulk at the craft store - typically near the area with the kids beading supplies.

    This fly looks just like a fly that I got from Ron ant AATF. He said it worked wonderful on the Bitteroot this spring. I've tried it in other Montana waters but I had no results.

    Great looking fly, I think some fly shops also carry a jelly rope type of material.

    Hi BG, are those markings on the worms done with a magic marker or comes "natural" with those yarn? Looks real wormy:thumb:

    Although I believe those markings are by a special pen, there ARE chenilles that have a mottled appearance. I uses verigated chenille to tie the deaded "Halloween Bugger" of Oregon fame. Is called "New Age" Chillile and it comes in a variety of colors.

    Hi SDave, I did a search and saw that bugger..."dreaded Halloween Bugger" meant a killer fly?

    I won't spill the beans :)

    Hey fellas sorry meant to get back to this thread and let you know what yarn that is above in my post, its Paton's Bohemiam yarn, I get it at Michaels super store here in Chicago surburbs. You can also order it online, check it out great for worm and larger bodies on sculpin and wooly bogger, crawfish type patterns etc. $ 5 for 68 yards each color, one yarn roll will last you a life time
