That's Original...The body looks like the real thing.... I wonder what winding hackle around the worm ,in the ridges, and cutting them short might make some great micro legs...Just a thought.

Isn't that a Wormus Rastafarianus? :hehe:

Pattern name: dread-knot?

It's a "lock" for a seaworm!

Very clever, stripers LOVE worms!

Striblue, I tried to wrap it but it wont look good. it is a braid, an it does strech out then you pull on it which gives it action in the water. maby a bigger eye an smaller marabou around the head.
Ill play with it some more. now that Im into TYIN MODE.
heres one you might enjoy it's only a BABY. I did it on a 7/0 hook

Salty, love original flies and trying to figure things out..Here is a thought..if it streaches out..try streaching it out to it's maximum...between two vises..... then wrap the hackle, or emu, or ostridge plums...the thin off shoots of the plumes..... By streaching,it will thin out the diameter and when you let go{slowly).. the material might settle perfectly between the ridges, and stay there.... then cut down the hackle so it is only like short fuzzy legs... you won't have to cut down the emu or plume offshoots....it might imitate the thousand legs of the sea worm. You will obviously need to experiment with the super glue and it still seems difficult because the streach will not be ridged for the tye down.
