    As it says in the title I am looking for your best/most unusual worm pattern. If you can. Cheers.

    I tied this one a while ago, it was one piece of red UTC wire with another piece wrapped around it like a guitar string. It didn't catch any fish, but I only had it on for about 10 casts.

    Pat M & NR they look great.

    I am running a swap in the UK on one of the boards and I think that one or two of the guys need a bit of inspiration.

    I'll point them in this direction if that is ok.

    Me I am tying (if that is the adjective?) the pink job with a pink cone!

    Thanks again

    I've fished these pink bunny worms a lot for winter fish. Done pretty well on a certain river. Bitch to tie up.

    YO Loopy! I'd completely forgotten you posted 'over here.' One 'fly' that I found to be deadly on the Russian River in Nor. Cal. was a bead head (usually copper) and the body was wound red Amnesia running line (around the hook). Just leave a 'inch' off the back end to swing/swirl in the current and a good to go.

    A bit of a take off of the San Juan Worm?

    Hi Fred

    The guys here are very helpful and it is always nice to refer the odd question.

    Do you tie yourself?

    I can't really imagine with all the boards you visit!

    That is a pretty cool pattern. Mine I am doing is similar in colour and length but that is about it!

    Terrific tie.

    Tie I do, usually during the winter months, when the days are short, cold, and I'm not interested in what's on the telly. Actually have three complete tie sets: one up stairs in my office, one in the motor home and another on a 'tv dinner' stand that I set up and 'tie a few' while watching a DVD movie.

    Do follow several boards (4 in the UK) but really only post (with frequency) on a few.

    Fred
