New YouTube Tutorial: Tying Cheech’s PerdiwormRead Time: 1 MInute | Published: 7th December 2023 | Author: Fulling Mill
There’s a long winter of fly tying ahead for all of us. We aim to keep you busy tying flies the whole time! Our most recent video features a new take on a worm pattern, the Perdiworm. Love them or hate them, sometimes worms are essential. After all, worms are naturally occurring and fish expect to see them just as they do bugs.
From the mind of Cheech at Fly Fish Food, the Perdiworm is a combination of a perdigon nymph and a worm. This is where its name was born. What’s cool about this pattern is that it has the fast sink rate of a perdigon nymph, but the look of a worm with it’s tail made from our Flex Floss. This allows you to get it down into pockets and deep runs fast and accurately, which allows you to fish more effectively. This is especially crucial if you’re fishing to tight targets in high water. It’s easy to tie and it catches loads of fish. What’s not to love?
If you want to tie this pattern yourself, you can find the materials on our website.
