Creek wacky worm
« on: May 09, 2018, 12:42:07 PM »
Water on the tribs is dropping...warming up...getting much clearer.

Quite a bit of surface activity today...sucking mayflies off the surface. When they start doing that, since I typically don't fly fish, I get out my Creek Wacky Worm. It seems that if bugs are on the menu then worms are also.



The Creek Wacky Worm that I use is a slender, ribbed, 4" worm with an o-ring supplied. I use a thin (finesse) 1 or 1/0 wide gap hook and usually add one small split shot. Quite a bit smaller than a senko both in length and girth. Just right for small tribs.

Quite a few small stream sized (1-1.5#) smallies.





With a few 2.5 pounders mixed in.







Give the Creek Wacky Worm set-up a try if you've never used it.

Bill
