Overhand Worm Peacock Bass!

Acrilic yarn OHW

Soon as I read the "Overhand worm treatise" by Chris Bum, I wanted to try it and was absolutely sure that "my" local peacocks would love it.

Actually, since they catch on almost anything that falls into to the water (even a bare hook), I was a little surprised I never before figured out a so simple fly could work for them.

The aspect I like most is that you can tie it on the go and change the hook dress to try different colors without even untying it from the tippet.

Practical and efficient, what else can anyone ask!?

Burned ends

Yeap, burning the yarn ends is crucial for the fly longevity and eficciency.
Good luck!

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.
