Mono Extended Cinder Worm

Rate this topic

13 posts in this topic

After listening to Captain Rays presentation about Cinder Worms at our November meeting I decided to eliminate some weight in my patterns so my fly will stay closer to the surface where Ray thought they would be more productive. The following video shows how I did this. I now use this same technique when tying my bunny flys.

I'm thrilled seeing the two mono extentions videos with different material applications.

Never thought cinder worms would be a popular tie since the event is so locale and unpredictable.

Nice narration. Instructions are spot on, easy to understand and tie the fly.

Like the idea of glue, making it more durable. Nice solutions for anti-fouling.

Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

It takes plenty of extra time to develop a lesson plan and photograph.

 

Let us know which models work best.

 

See you at the Expo. Bring some samples.

With a little foam added to the head and slight changes in sizing and coloring, it looks like this would make a good Palolo Worm imitation for those Keys tarpon. Any Florida members care to comment?

I tye up some with lead eyes to sink, some plain shank for a slow sink and some with foam bodies and rabbit tail or even marabou for keeping up top. Thanks for sharing the video, my friend already asked me to tye one in that style.

I really enjoyed the video as I have tied many different styles of cinder worms.

The extended mono tail was a new one for me.

The top fly was tied as close to the video instruction as my materials would allow.

Then I wondered if I could spin deer hair on a mono extension.

The lower fly is the result.

Thanks for the demonstration.[ATTACHMENT=4545]DSC01577.JPG (4,721k. JPG file)[/ATTACHMENT]

stein- nice fly - I like that brush - what brand is it?

 

I sent you a PM with the info on the brush but if you google "Cross Hole Deburring Brushes" you should find something similar in many sizes.

Super vid, Stein!!! Great concept. Will you be at BD Expo next Sat?

Thank you for sharing. Jerry

 

Jerry thanks for the compliment. I went to the Bears Den Expo last year and enjoyed it. It was a little too crowded to get around 1st thing in the morning so if we go this year it will be a little later in the day to avoid that crush.
