Jim great work.

Jim those flies are right on the money. A suggestion , tie some with foam in the head so that they'll float in the surface film. I've seen some of the Rhody guys patterns with black foam for the head. It's real killer . Yes sort of like a mini gurgler.

Are cinder worms only found in the Mass/RI coastal area ?

Never experience a cinder worm hatch....does these things actually hatch? ie swim up to the surface?

I'm aware of several worm hatches right here in CT, and of at least two across LI Sound on the north side of Long Island.

The term "worm hatch" is a bit misleading, as it is actually a worm swarm where a huge biomass of the creatures get together for what can be best described as a spawning party.
