I am finding the discussion on "worm" flies quite interesting and informative. So, with all this worm talk, I thought I'd offer a tie of mine that is well worth the little extra effort it takes to tie it. It works quite well, contains no extra weight and it sinks quite well. Others, besides myself, that have fished it have had a great deal of success with it.
Comments are welcome with hopes some will tie and try it.

You are driving me to the vise.
On another note, after my dad passed away I got a chance to
take a peek in to his fly box. It was a cheap luan wood box from Japan with ridiculous flies that appeared to never have been used, except for a well rusted worm hook!! and laden with dirt. What a bubble buster.
Lightly on the dimpling eddy fling;
the hypocritic fly's unruffled wing.

Very nice. Not surprised it works so well, as it bears a striking resemblance to the pupal lifestage of many caseworker caddisflies, and probably even feels like the same texture if a trout bites down on it.
