Spectral Bloodworm


Description

The bloodworm is an imitation of the larval stage of the Chironomid midge or buzzer. Bloodworm spend the majority of their time living in a silty tube. When disturbed they move their bodies from side to side..

Best fished either on a floating line and long leader or sinking/intermediate line near the bottom, using a slow figure of eight retrieve.

 

Tying Instructions

Insert a gold bead and position in the centre of the hookshank.

Take two pieces of flexifloss - equal length

Twist one piece of flexifloss a few times and secure with thread to the lower side of the bead. Whip finish.

Twist the other piece of flexifloss a few times and secure with thread to the upper side of the bead. Whip finish.

Varnish the thread as required

NB. Twisting the flexifloss may take some time until you get it correct. Trim each of the lengths until they are around 3 times the length of the hook shank.
