fly of the week…the Q worm fly


Never underestimate the power of the worm fly. Here are two simple examples of a weighted and non weighted version of the Q Worm Fly tied by Al Quattrocchi. These flies can imitate fresh or saltwater worms, eels or leeches. The back portions are tied on mono and added to the bend of the hook shank. This extension allows the rabbit tails not to foul.

    not following how back portions are tied on mono and added to the bend of the hook shank.

    • I tie the rabbit to a piece of 60# hard mason, stiff mono. I put the mono in the vise then tie the rabbit to it. Then palmer the chenille about a quarter of an inch and tie off. the remaining naked piece of mono gets attached to the hook, so it extends off the back. I may need to do a video?
      LOL

        I think I understand. A video would be very helpful.
        I live in Central Oregon and fish for browns, rainbow and smallmouth. 60# mono may not be necessary so thinking of using a 20-30#. Thank you for the explanation.
