I do the standard walts worm. hares ear plus #1 and lead wraps. I use them in sizes 12-16. I also like to ruff them up.

Fur bugs are great, and my favorite is the muskrat fur bug, just a clump of muskrat dubbed on a hook, works great.

Try using orange thread underbody and rib with uv body quill and make a nice orange head. I like to touch dub mine and brush out the guard hairs for a spiky look.

Very nice tie though. Well done.


I have seen this pattern somewhere. Loren Williams maybe?

I have never tied nor fished a Walt's Worm. I decided to tie a half dozen for a trip to Spring Creek last Friday. Well I must say it is an effective pattern. I caught my first EVER trout during the month of January and the first for 2012 on this simple fly. I think I will have to add this pattern to my arsenal.

WTT, they are very effective on Spring creeks. Atleast in the small amount of fly fishing experience I have. It was still outfished 6-1 by dubbing on a hook cress bug on Spring, but it works.

How about Frank Sawyer's killer bug? Pretty much the same thing as Walt's worm... except you can't buy the original wool.

Resized Image

I like to blend a few dubbings for walt's worm to create something grayish / tannish with a pink tinge. Mostly I use the natural gray SLF squirrel dubbing mixed with a bit of rainbow sow-scud dubbing.
