jared worms have already been hatching at a couple locations...cold weather will doubtless shut them off again, but it's all about time on the water!!

Started to tie up some worm flys for the much anticipated hatch. Pretty simple:

size 1 to 4 gamakatsu hook

Black thread

Tie on a small amount of red marabo{or anthing else that will give it movement) about the length of the hook

Wind a length of red tinsel chhenille up the length of the hook stopping short of the eye. Cut off the excess.

Wind on a small amount of black tinsel chenille to form a head.

Tie it off, tie it on, and go fishing.

Any body out there doing anything else? I have an open mind and an empty fly box.

jared scheduling for this is going to be far more at the whim of the worms than anything else...when you hit a worm hatch right it is EPIC!

have fun & happy hunting.

juro I sure will! Currently waiting on a reply from Jenks. I'll email him tonight as well. BTW - Roop will not be able to coordinate this event this year. We are taking volunteers to oversee this and coordinate the event with Peter Jenkins and the Saltwater Edge.

Email me if you are interested. Thanks,

Striper I would like to attend Juro please post dates as soon as humanly possible so'z I can make some plans to join you'z guy'z. I can bring the boat but boats and worm hatches don't normally go hand in hand unless we need a boat to reach the hatch. Either way I would be interested in commiserating with the pro's from here. Names to faces and such. Even maybe catch a fish or 2. I will check back often for your updates. Thanks!!!

Thanks Mark. That clears things up for me. My Latin is a little rusty. The only thing this old alter boy remembers is how to conjugate the verb "to spit". Spito, Spitari, Hacktui, Splat.:hehe:

nathansmith May 25/26 Count me in I think. I should be ready to go by then

Dble Haul Jimmy, the answer to your question is yes. The cinder worm and clam worm are names that are used interchangeably along the coast to describe what is essentially the same creature. While scup and porgy are the same species, either one of the worm nomenclatures is used to include any one of hundreds of different species of marine worms. The differences in these species' physiology is minimal and of no real relevance to angler, unless you'd like to get into some Latin and hair splitting.

Quick question. I know from my travels around New England, I could be talking about the same fish as some one else and not know it due to the different names of the fish. Down here we have porgys. Some place may have scup. Same fish different name. The question is this..... Cinder worm....Clam worm. Same critter or totally different animal? I need to know!

Adrian Ray, thats cool - don't forget to bring along a few of those new organic flies too

RayStachelek I'm fine tuning my flatwings and cinder worm patterns as I speak.
