May 4, 2014 By: Marshall Cutchin

In this week’s featured fly tying video, Tim Flagler ties both the standard and “Sexy” version of the Walt’s Worm, a fast-sinking crane fly larva imitation. “The original Walt’s Worm, developed by Walt Young of Pennsylvania, has been a favorite of competitive anglers for many years, particularly the jig version,” notes Flagler. “Former fly-fishing team USA member, guide and fly fishing instructor Loren Williams dressed up a Walt’s Worm to create the Sexy Walt’s, which is also a staple of competitive angling fly boxes.”
