WHEN the grass is crunchy underfoot and the fallen leaves make a random pattern of colour and ice crystals, then you know instinctively that the fishing will not be that easy! So what do you do? In some respects it depends how desperate you are to catch fish. Have you pressured yourself by buying a full day ticket and are you determined to remain until you have caught your limit? Or have you bought a two-fish ticket, planning to fish through just the warmer part of the day and if you catch one, will go home happy?
Enjoyed reading your article about the Squirm. The San Ron Worm pattern works even better then the Squirm and its more durable. See the Video - Shows you how to make a San Ron Worm. Using glue. I'll be glad to send you some to try.
Just let me know,

I have taken the name of this article from the children rhyme which everyone knows in our country, because this expresses the best what I want to write about. I could have also called the article as: “The Year of a Worm”, but I am not entirely sure, whether it was just the last year or it will be this year. But I will start from the beginning.
For several years, we can see especially on American fly fishing websites increasing a number of articles about various types of worms. Worm as a pattern of a fly fishing bait is nothing new in our country and it got here from Poland, where it was often used in muddy water after strong rains. At the Youth World Championship 2009 in East Bohemia, one day the Doubrava River was so muddy that something could have been caught only with Polish worms.
