Mummy Worms Work!!
Deer hair indicator and trailing hook
I had purchased four different colors of the Mummy Worms (natural, pink, red and brown) about a month ago and finally had a chance to test them this past Sunday on a local pond. I used my wife's Kurenai HM33R with a floating line, a creature deer hair indicator and a Daiichi 1120 size 12 on a hook dropper about 18" long. (see picture attached) After catching over 2 dozen bluegill I learned a valuable lesson. Retie the hook after about every 12 fish or so. I lost my hook on about bluegill number 27. All the colors of the Mummy Worms I have worked. I was able to catch about a one-to-one ratio of worm to fish. It would be a great bait to use introducing a child to fish using tenkara methods. Thanks Chris for carrying the worms.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
