I thought they were one and the same. I suppose a San Juan worm uses limp chenille, versus a pipe cleaner on the wire worm?

Either way, I've never spent any time fishing either one. Sorry to waste your time on technicalities, but this seems like critical fly fishing knowledge, so....


I have an amazing collection of fishing shirts
or just use red chenille and call it a day?
if you want to catch less fish sure. there is something to be said for worms that stay down in the water column. there is also something to be said for flash. they are still super fast and easy to tie, and will outfish an unweighted basic bitch worm anyday.
