About the Hairy Yellow Badger Woolly Worm Trout Fly
"The Hairys". The basic secret of the Hairy Yellow Badger Woolly Worm, as with all Hairy flies and bug patterns is the pulsing action of the hair hackle. Hair is substituted for feathers found in the traditional patterns. This pattern as with all my Hairys have a natural action in the water and it is imperative that fishermen remember that artificial flies at the end of their leader act like living organisms.
Normal fishing methods should be used when fishing the "Hairys" - Gordon (2002)
Th Tucked Half Blood is one of a number of knots to use to attach a fly to the end of the tippet. The final tuck makes it a much more secure knot than the basic half blood knot.
