WORMS ALWAYS CATCH FISH
It is true that worms are not insects and they are not fished on the surface of the water. Nevertheless, we have decided to group them here. Because just like other representatives of the terrestrials, they regularly fall into the water themselves. There they are an extremely desirable prey for every fish.
Many a fly fisherman may turn up his nose at the imitation of a worm. But the fact remains that these special fly patterns can save your fishing day. If you are surprised by a short thunderstorm in summer while fishing, it is not uncommon for the water to become cloudy immediately. The fly fisherman with the nymph or even dry fly packs up under such conditions. Yet the conditions are now perfect for imitation worms. For worms are also washed into the water with the soil. Due to the turbidity of the water the fish is less suspicious and it is harder for them to see you. The worms, then again, are tied in eye-catching colours and the very mobile materials make them play very seductively in the water. Thus, fish will notice and take them eagerly. Because they are weighted down, you can reach the bottom quickly even when the water level is high.
Because of this you should always have some worms in your fly box. This way you are well prepared for turbid water caused by a quick downpour and can continue fishing successfully.
