App’s Bloodworm

Posted on 23 March 2013 by Vincent

The App’s bloodworm created a real buzz on several reservoirs over the last couple of years. It has proven itself to be a real trout slayer, especially in winter time. Fished dead-drift on a bung, it can save your day! The fun part is, you don’t even need tying thread for this fly!

On De Ronde Bleek we use this fly a lot. Especially with a bung system. Usually pretty deep. Most trout feed on the 4m to 6m layer, so we want to present this fly at these depths. To reach these depths fast, I use one tungsten bead on the fly. The original pattern only has plastic or glass beads.

It’s a fast tie, because you don’t even need a tying thread! It’s all done using a hook, the flexi floss, some beads and a threader. Darn easy!
