Just wondering, does everyone tie them fat like that? I'm not being critical, I'm sking because I thought I'd tie some and want to know the preference.

SBecker,
I believe the saying goes "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

Chadwick's sells for as much or more in the UK. Nobody who knows what it is sells it for a few pounds.

Lol I was just joking. I could not see that little bit of material could go for that high on the net.

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

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.

I found this at a place in center Hall called the quilters attic I believe. Took a bit of searching to find the right stuff, the key is what it looks like when wet. The material should have a dark redish light brown/tanny appearance to it. The woman that owned the shop ( now closed ) was very understanding to my plight, even to the point of letting me cut off a piece and dip it in a cup of water, it is 100% wool and when it gets wet it gets darker. It might not look like it ( dry )but this is a very good match to the color that Frank Sawyer used. I tied some and the first time I fished it I caught three trout without taking a step, and I was on a small stream with wild browns in it about five feet wide. Needless to say I was excited about this fly, killer bug seemed a good name...

Well that's a bummer the pic did not show.

Hi Guys
Just joined after seeing that you had put a link of my website up.
Just to let you know that it is genuine Chadwicks and i buy up cards as and when i can and offer them at the price i do so people get the chance to use something genuine without paying for a full card.
I only have a couple of pieces left.
I am going to have a scout round the form and hope that i can contribute to it in a small way
