How to Fish the Worm
The Worm, based on Jack Gartside’s Soft Hackle Eel, is designed as an alternative to the ubiquitous foam worm fly. It lands softer and swims with a little wiggle. Cast in front of the fish and slightly beyond it’s line of travel. Start a steady two-hand retrieve as soon as the fly hits the water and keep it moving as the fish approaches; never let the fish see the fly sit still.
