Wire Blood Worm

I was playing around with wire and some flash to create a blood worm pattern.  Below is the result.

Hook –Mustad 37169 Wide Gap
Size – 16
Thread –8/0 Red
Body – .32 Gauge Red Wire
Rib – Krystal Flash

1. Mash down barb, tie in wire and Krystal Flash.

2. Tie down the wire and flash all the way back to the bend.
 3. Bring thread forward and half hitch.
4. Advance wire forward and tie off.
5. Wind Krystal Flash forward with open
wraps, tie down and whip finish.

 6. Apply a layer of head cement to the entire fly.
