NICE and nasty!

Had some great success with sea worm patterns two years ago on the flats.

I've also got a worm pattern coming in my winter dirty dozen as well

Tube and worm?

Hmmm,

I just cannot switch over to trolling a tube and worm from my kayak. I know that the tube and worm is effective but I love the flyrod.

But if I could troll a worm with a flyrod then I could deal!

I would love to see a recipe for those flies as well.

Thanks,

Mike

I'm curious about the recipe also. Nice photo too -- where'd you find a sunny, snow-free dune lately??

Some breeeef info, on the sea worms,THIS being my 1ST REALISTIC FISHABLE FLY.
I tied these guys up during the SUMMER!
to answer one queston about the SUN,DUNES. the fly came about cause of BOB MARTIN,
I was on BOB'S site during the summer,THEY DO REALISTIC FLYS, I don't do FREASHWATER
so SALTWATER was for me. I decided to try something easy,(not). this is what I
came up with. they do come in 3. different colors we around here mostly the BROWN.

PATTEN!
HOOK--> your favorite LONG SHANK

BODY---> now it get interesting!
1.tie some MONO the lenth of the fly, to the bend of the hook (yes) back.

2.DEER HAIR lay FLAT along MONO an tie it in. ( now your going to need some GLUE)
NOT head cement!SOFTEX will work fine.(tip) I used FLEX-CEMENT you can get it in a CRAFT SHOP
BIG BOTTLE for less money.

3.NOW if you intend to FISH this fly you will need some LEAD WEIGHT to attach to the BOTTOM.
you can find FLAT LEAD WEIGHT an cut into strips an lay along the bottom 2/3 of the way UP.
you don't want the fly to DIG into the sand.BUT you do want it to LAY FLAT an PUSH ALONG
the BOTTOM, moving some sand as you pull it.

4.time to shape a body, you will need some TISSUE an your flex cement.your going to RIP
small amounts of TISSUE (thumb nail) size an LAY it on the deerhair an coat it w/ FLEXCEMENT
to start forming the body. after you have it the SIZE you want, LET DRY!!!

5.now shape the HEAD, an PINCHERS.

6.COLOR---> this is where MARKING PENS come in, the best pins for the job are PRISMACOLOR
they have 2. ends to them an work GREAT. ( or use what ever you like).

7.next COAT EVERYTHING with flexcement. to get it waterproof.

8.LEGS.---> OSTRAGE PLUME, lay along bottom. cut to lenth.
some of the PURRRRIST will say it's NOT a fly. BUT that ok. taking tying to another step
makes it a LITTLE more interesting.(to me ).

THAT's IT, go fish it or display it.

I want to thank TIM WOHLAND (the MASTER) in saltwater realistics.an all the outher tyers
for taking time,interest in my tying an helping me along W/TIPS to the process of creating
some new FISHABLE REALISTIC FLYS.
GOOD LUCK GOOD
P.S. you can see some of TIM'S flys on the covers of FLY-TYER MAG.
