Bloodworm Larvae – nymph fly tying

The name bloodworm refers to several species of wormlike creatures – including some large saline rag worms. This fly however imitates the red midge larvas found in many lakes, ponds and slow moving rivers. This is a very simple and uncomplicated tie, but it has given me trout, grayling and some really large whitefish. I feel it is important to thoroughly brush out the dubbing, to make the natural fibres and the flashy stuff glow.
