How To Create The 'Indestructible' Squirmy by Steve Cullen

Worm flies are ideal flies to use, post rainfall or snowmelt runoff. Engorged streams with increasingly fast currents will dig into the mucky banks and churn up the burrowed worms. Trout feed on worms out of a natural reflex to eat what looks familiar or they mistake the shape and color for an extremely large midge larva. Either way, that’s good news for u. Therefore the Squirmy Wormy fly is an ideal weapon to use, the only issue with them is that after prolonged use, the tails or heads seem to fall off, rendering the fly useless. Through Steve Cullen's video, you'll be able to keep those wormy heads/tails on and if they fall off, you'll be able to replace them in no time!

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to create an  'Indestructible' Squirmy Wormy, with the guidance of Steve Cullen.


Materials:
Hook: Jig Hook, size 14 Thread: Red Loop: 8lb fluoro Bead: 3mm copper

If you are looking to try the Squirmy fly out, you will also require a Squirmy Wormy. You can find teh Squirmy Wormy on our website in a range of different colours, including the pink pattern that you seen in Steve's video.
