Fly Tying Videos: Tying the Woven Wire Weevil

April 8, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

The WWW (Woven Wire Weevil) is an extension of the Jeremy Davies “Evil Weevil” pattern from Alberta Canada. With the addition of tungsten and a woven wire body, the pattern takes on a whole new look. Substituting yellow/black wire produces a convincing bee/wasp imitation, and by using a chartreuse/olive combination the fly becomes a capable caddis attractor.
Since the pattern will ride hook-up in the water, it’s a super-durable bottom-bouncing fly — perfect for any Czech nymphing and tight-line arsenal.
