I just realized I never posted my namesake fly "Sandworms "
When I was about 9 years old my Dad took us Camping to Wildwood State Park out on Long Island. We spent days Surfcasting the L. I. Sound. Sandworms were the Bait of choice. They came packaged in a box filled with Seaweed . Those THINGS scared the crap out of me !!!! Lol. As soon as you grab one these huge retractable black Pinchers pop out of the head and try to bite you. So after a quick beheading with my trusty knife they were all hooked up and ready to fish !
So when I started inventing realistic patterns my old rival the Sandworm was tops on my list. ( cause of the fond memories ) lol and a few drops of Blood !

Gorgeous fly, grotesque creature

Amazing what you can create with a few materials and a hook, well done.

You are not allowed to tie a worm to a hook and call it realistic fly tying. How did you get it to hold still long enough to tie it on?

 

Awesome job for sure.


Life is too serious to take it too seriously!

Incredible! Well done!

 

Are the legs some sort of biots?
