Walts Worm/Cranefly Larvae
I figured I would put up a little information on this often overlooked fly.
The walts worm is a generic pattern that is most known for imitating the cranefly larvae.
Hook: 14 2x long
Dubbing - Hares Ear(natural)
Ribbing - Mono
Tie in the shape of a cutoff cigar! That simple
I prefer my cranefly larvae to be like the following. I do NOT use these colors, I use natural, with a dark brown head. My tailing also is just like a hares ear nymph!!!! Click Here - Cranefly
The next time your on the stream and having trouble taking fish, try one of these patterns. Craneflys typically hatch between late april and the beginning of july.
