The Story

A hot tungsten bead quickly drops this field-tested pattern into the feeding zone. Anglers have fished the San Juan Worm for decades, and for good cause. Biologists will tell you nearly every body of water harbors some form of aquatic worm. The fish know this, and tend to make it a key part of their diet. This version features a barbless, claw-point tactical hook and comes in the key colors of red or pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynamite I have used this config before in light shallow running water in the Sierra mountains and lower Kern River. Trout love this bait big or small. Lost mine awhile did not realize it until trip prepping. I usually do not prep so early but for reason I did and then realized had lost it. Anyways bought two more looking forward too remaking them on!!!
