Shaky Worm

This trout fishing worm pattern will make you a believer.


This is not fly fishing heresy. The fact is trout eat worms and not just the ones we fish with. Worms exist in the stream and imitating a worm with artificial patterns is no different than imitating an insect. If it works, use it. Trout fishing worm pattern in red.

    Not Durable - 10/15/2012

    I agree with the other reviewers on this product. It does not last long at all. I fish a quarry which is infested with zebra mussels so the water is crystal clear. I tossed one of these out and watched a small bass, I mean small bass tear the worm in half. No I didn't catch it, it went after the worm, not the hook. I bought 2 of these and they both fell apart. On the upside, I had some nice hooks, and since I started tying flies, the hooks came in handy and were used to tie one of my first flies.

    Shaky Worm even catches carp - 8/2/2012
    By: from Albany,NY

    The Shaky Worm is a multi species lure. I have caught bass, trout, panfish, crappie and hooked a large carp, with my Orvis Superfine Touch. The carp still has possession of the Shaky Worm, but I a still surprised at the variety of fish caught with the Shaky Worm.

    Shaky Worm - 2/16/2012

    I think the reviewers are correct about the durability of this fly but the fact is it catches trout. I have caught trout on this when they were not taking any traditional pattern such as eggs and etc.

    It really shakes. I was expecting a more solid product, but it surprised me. Very good item.

    Great for attracting fish, but is easily destroyed - 8/11/2011
    By: from Downingtown, PA

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!! I have now purchased this fly twice. The first fly snagged a fairly large trout on my second cast, but when I got the fish in hand, the worm was missing sans the hook itself. I bought a second fly thinking that the durability of the first one was a fluke, but again, the very first fish I caught, which was a 4" baby sunny, had also destroyed the fly. At least I got a good 3 minutes of fun total with my money.

    Catches Fish but not Durable - 4/12/2011
    By: from Dallas

    I saw that another reviewer caught fifty fish on one of these. My experience is that bream and crappie like this fly, but that it tears easily. I am averaging two fish before the fly is destroyed. It may be different for trout fishing.

    Unbelieveble movement! - 12/16/2009

    Unmatched natural movement in the water. This THE new fly as a searching nymph. It is also tough. Have caught well over 50 fish a day on one fly.
