Woolly Worm

tied by jhammer
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Material List:
Hook: Size 6 Eagle Claw 084 model hook
Thread: Black 6/0 Uni-Thread
Tail: Hot Pink Mini-Marabou
Body: Fluorescent Yellow Chenille (Or any other color you wish)
Hackle: Hot Pink saltwater neck hackle
Tying Instructions: Tie this the same way you would tie a woolly bugger. It's just a shorter version. Clip the tail to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch long. I use a larger hackle on my woolly buggers and woolly worms because it creates a lot more action in the water. You're free to use any color combinations you wish, but I've discovered that a hot pink hackle/tail combination works wonders. White/hot pink, yellow/hot pink, orange/hot pink, and green/hot pink all work great. For selective crappie, try a white body with a silver doctor blue hackle and tail.
Presentation Tips: A simple twitch-twitch-pause retrieve is all it takes with this little fly. Bass, panfish, carp, drum, and cats love these flies. Just vary the speed of your retrieve until you start getting strikes.
