Thanks for sharing, Robbie!

I should add that the other posts on your blog are well worth the time to read and learn!

Cheers,

Yeah I'm always checking the blogs out!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Thanks for sharing this Robbie. Nice to see that we are all in the same boat or can of worms with this product from a tying perspective.

As you mentioned sandwiching the Squirmy Worm material between other products can be effective. Here are a couple examples.
The top pattern has it sandwiched between the plastic straw material and the Semperfli straggle string or the new Leggy Straggle Sting. The others below have a wrap over the body with Quick Dub material and then a second layered wrap over the squirmy worm material. The Quick Dub thread can be laid flat on top of the Squirmy or can be twisted and then laid on top of the squirmy material. We also do those patterns on jig hook styles.

In both caes the material (squirmy) is held in position well with out cutting it.
