Woolly Worm – Fly Tying Video Instructions

Video tutorial courtesy of our friends at InTheRiffle

The Woolly Worm is a classic streamer pattern mainly used for trout, bass, and bluegill. The two most popular colors are black/red and olive/red.

The Woolly Worm is best tied on a small streamer hook in sizes #04-08. The Woolly Worm is a very versatile pattern. It can be dead drifted, stripped back, or swung in the current. The Woolly Worm has been a staple pattern in trout fly boxes for a long time, and continues to be a favorite pattern among many anglers today!
