One thought on “Walt’s Worm

  1. It seems like I learn something new with every tying video you post! This time, it was the way you shaped your dubbing BEFORE you started twisting up your dubbing loop. It seems very effective at getting the desired dubbing profile along the hook shank. That is something I will definitely start doing. And, of course, there is the ingenious way you apply varnish to a bead-headed fly. I had seen you do that before on an earlier video but it was a good reminder for me.
