About the Helix Bloodworm Trout Fly

All buzzers start off as bloodworms but few anglers, until very recently, have bothered to carry an imitation in their bags. This is an excellent choice in this context.
Bloodworms are classically found at the bottom of lakes, and a good deal of weighting is required to effect this, on a slim dressing.

Expert Tip:

In broad and in very basic terms - the bloodworm is the stage larva of a buzzer/ chironomid.

Creator of this trout fly: Tony Hern
