I was running dangerously low of this simple, yet deceitfully deadly pattern, the megaworm. The day's mission was to replenish the stockade and experiment a bit more with the fritz Singlebarbed sent me. I focused on the pinks and purples since they have been hot this spring.
I'm not sure if using the fritz will have any advantage over the purple glimmer flash chenille, but I'll soon find out. What I need to do is find a 6mm bead with a smaller hole, as the hook eyes pull through on some of the beads, even on a size 6 salt hook. I swapped some of the 6mm beads for a 4mm tungsten that won't slip. Thje extra weight and more streamlined profile should help this version get down to the bottom quicker. I'll know for sure if I start dredging up redhorse.
