Tying saltwater flies and the squirmy wormy.

Squirmy Wormy Fly

Commercial and Retail Squirmy Wormy Fly tying

I tie and sell the squirmy wormy fly on Ebay at retail prices. I tie a better fly than 90% of the tiers selling this pattern on Ebay. You will see many inferior products here. Some are using cheap wire hooks and sewing thread. Will not last 10 casts. I use only good quality Danville or UTC thread for my Squirmy Wormy Fly patterns. Superior hooks like MFC, J.Stockard, Dai Rikki, Mustad, and  Eagle Claw. I use mostly MFC, Dai Rikki, and J.Stockard on my squirmy wormy fly patterns.I can use premium hooks like Tiemco, Gamakatsu, and Daiichi. At this writing the premium hooks will be extra and require a lead time of up to 4 weeks. 

If you are a shop, guide, eBay seller, or retailer submit your email HERE for a sample, lead times, and pricing. I focus on quality well tied flies with premium materials. I have no desire to try and compete with inferior fly manufacturers. If a quality fly for the best fishing experience is what you want, feel free to contact me.

About me

American Fly Tyer and Freelancer


I find tying the bigger saltwater flies to be very enjoyable. They are much slower to tie but the results are worth the extra work.

The squirmy wormy is a very easy fly pattern for me to tie and I can do so fairly quickly. Usually around 20 flies a day when I take time from other activities,  I do take the time to make sure I tie a quality squirmy wormy fly. Wider and flatter UTC thread along with dubbing make sure that I do not cut the worm material. Ensuring the fly will hold up under tough bites and excessive casting.

My Clouser minnows are tied on Mustad stainless steel hooks with 140 denier thread, MFC blue holographic eyes, and Hareline bucktail. I coat my thread head with zap a gap to seat the head then cap with Loon hard head to make sure the thread stays on the hook and the fly does not unravel on long hard casts. A person pays good money for a fly then they should get a good fly in return.

I tie Lefty's Deceiver pattern on Mustad hooks, UTC 140 denier or danville 6/0.  I prefer MFC strung saddles over Hareline when available. I fill the hook gap with braid then tie in Northern Bucktail. Tight and Neat! That is what you have to have for tough fishing conditions. My heads are set with zap a gap, dried then capped with loon hard head.



I tie the Squirmy Wormy fly as it is easy to ship and samples can be mailed by postal letter. That is the no bead san juan worm variant. 

Fly tying is my main gig but I will do manual web scraping (businesses only), web search and research, content writing, ebay and amazon listing (non automated) and other virtual assistant tasks... websites, social media marketing,, google adwords. Rate  is $14/ hour. Montana businesses inquire for discount rate.
