I have done similar, and I have also touch dubbed so it stuck out between the segments.

What is the body material?

Nice fly.

Looks good Sand, I would modify that a tad bit to my specifics but I like the concept. I think I would make the head black and a little bigger

I use something very similar to this, if you tie it on a curved hook and dub both ends, it represents a crane fly quite nicely. Haven't had much luck with it for trout, but bass love it.

Use it after a good rain, or at anytime in summer with rising water levels. That has always worked best for me with this type of fly.

I found these work better for cranefly's, don't know why but trout eat them more than the latex type.

I will definitely have to try something similar to that. Do you ever use large curved hooks for them? That seems to give it an action that bass just love.

Easy, one moves like its alive, and one just sits there like a realistic, but fake, latex lump.

Same reason that I bet JayL's touchdubbed version of the probably out performs the other one... Movement means life.

Most larva don't move much in the water, so a latex pattern normally works. This is for you gfem, a tied and brushed butter worm.

For a cranefly ??? I tie mine all on size 10-12 mustad 9575 streamer hooks small.

Now a water worm thats different, they can be large like a hellgramite larva only worm like. here's a pic though its listed as a crane fly its a water worm

S'not bad, beats my lumpy looking Walt's Worm.

What's the dubbing you used?

I finally broke out the coffee grinder to produce my own blends last night, been playing with cut up substitute antron to much glee.

I saw a guy throwing water worms once, they were massively nasty looking beasts, and I have no idea what htey were...

Google sez... nothing, way too much results for "water worm."

water worm is the larval stage of a beetle that becomes terrestrial after hatching.

Its abdomen is not dubbed, but a thread furled twice and the wrapped. The thorax is A.B.Caddis dubbing (antron blend) then I use a wire brush to get the effect.

I dunno, says there they come from a beetle 1.5 inches long, the grubs this guy had were monsters, like the size of your pinkie, so this might make sense.

You seriously need to put some of this down and get it out there, I have only a base idea of what you mean by furling the thread, but it looks killer.
