San Juan Worm Red
San Juan Worm Red - Worm. The Red San Juan Worm was first created to imitate the aquatic worms of the San Juan.River The living worms tend to be of neutral colours however time and experience have demonstrated that Trout frequently find an added attraction to the extra little colouring. Trout simply cannot resist this tempting imitation when it is put before them. The San Juan Worm has a very natural wormlike wiggle to it, fished in busier waters this fly is guaranteed to fool even the most spooky trout.
The San Juan Worm Red imitates a buzzer in its nymph stage as it comes to emerge into an adult midge. This is a light buzzer without a beadhead so flutters more gently through the water. A midge starts life in muddy water as a bloodworm or chironomide which is blood red in color. When ready to emerge this wiggles to the surface and this is when we use a San Juan Worm Red to imitage this stage of the midge's life. Do not be afraid of using small San Juan Worm Red as a buzzer can be just a few millimetres long.
San Juan Worm Red is shown as a pupa on the Midge Life Cycle drawing. The San Juan Worm Red is a very good imitation of a pupa. The pupa can be olive, red, brown, black or other colours according to the water and where the buzzer imitated by the San Juan Worm Red is in the water column. Buzzers start blood red when at the bottom of the water and change as they rise to the surface to emerge.

San Juan Worm Red Dry Fly Drifting (New Zealand Style)
In New Zealand they developed a fishing style with a very heavy, larger fly and a San Juan Worm Red which is tied to a tippet attached to the bend or the eye of the large dry fly. This is deadly when used with a highly buoyant fly like Goddard Caddis, alternatively a heavy hackled klinkhammer or suspend the San Juan Worm Red using a foam fly. The San Juan Worm Red can be used as part of a team of fishing flies to hunt out those Brown Trout. On rivers using a San Juan Worm Red under a New Zealand rig is superb as both the San Juan Worm Red and the dry fly act as trout flies to attract trout and simultaneously present flies at surface and underwater catching trout at all stages of feeding. Using a Klinkhammer you are also presenting an emerging insect making the maximum of all opportunities.
