worm fly technique

How do you fish the worm fly? Small quick strips?

RE: worm fly technique

Check out for an excellent article by Kenney Abrames on just this topic. I use a similar technique to Kenney's but haven't graduated to three flies or the strike indicator yet. Critical in my opinion is fishing over fish that are not gorging but cruising feeding in a less dense swarm. The gorging fish are just to tough I'd rather use my legs to find a better scenario.

RE: worm fly technique

I use small strips, but use the rod under the arm technique and try to make the worm swim as steadily as possible...not jerky. I fish the small worm flies (I only use one dropper to keep things simple), and if you look at the little worms swimming, they moter-vate like little torpedoes. The big worms have more an undulating action and will swim in small circles. I prefer to fish the small worm flies because I can mimic the action of the small worms. Don't be deterred by the size of the fly...after dark, I have caught keeper size bass on 1 inch flies.
