I couln't resist! If you look carefully you can see it in his upper lip. I rarely use them, but I'm not sure why. There definitely doesn't need to be caterpillars around. Boyers brown widda weenie

What's your best green weenie recipe?


p.s. does the long back end of that pink worm hinder hookups??

Chartruse chenille, black thread, lead wire.

Add wraps of lead as desired.

Tie chenille in at bend of hook and make a small loop for the tail, tie off.

wrap thread forward

wrap chenille forward

tie off, make head, whip finish.

That looks about right.

Meck suggests to use different thread colors to signify how many wraps of lead. I usually tie them lead free, personally...

I've had more success than not with the looped tail.

I've heard old timers say that the loop is very important, but i doubt it's true. It comes down to a matter of preference and tradition for me. The fly has always had a loop and I see no reason to change it.

Also, the damn things are so easy to tie that I'd feel bad not adding at least SOME little bits of complexity.... not that it's very much at all.

I do tie my loops small enough that you can't see through the hole in the middle... I think it looks stupid otherwise.

I think it helps balance a weighted one better, but if I tied one unweighted to use as an inchworm imitation I wouldn't use one. Not sure if it actually helps, it just seems so useless that some really smart dude must have figured out some complex reason why the loop should be there, otherwise it would have been done away with by now. That's the best answer I got.

I don't tie in the loop. I don't like the way it looks and I doubt it helps catch more fish. Also, the original Sinking Inchworms were tied without the loop. So that's the "classic" way to tie them.

The loop tail came later. And the beadhead addition came even later than that. They all catch fish of course.

Dear ryguyfi,

I tie the green weenie with the loop tail. I also tie them with a beadhead most of the time. Try them in red, they are called "red hots."

As far as the length of the pink worm, trout have no problem eating an earthworm or a nightcrawler so they have no problem eating an IPW.

In case anyone is wondering, I've never had one "swallow" the IPW and wind up gut hooked. It's a great fly and one that I won't go fishing without.

Regards,
Tim Murphy
