Water worms are a tough yet ultra soft material. They are free-form made so size and shapes may vary. Tapered ends can be achieved by holding the material over a heat source, allowing it to melt, and then gently pulling the material apart. Available in both bright and natural colors and two diameters allowing you to tie a variety of beautiful, functional flies.
Durable flies are achieved by inserting the hook into the material and over a base of thread which has been lightly brushed with Zap-A-Gap / superglue. Wrapping the material around the hook shank or binding the material with tight wraps of thread is not recommended as the material will migrate over time and split or break.
