Pattern Description
The creatively named Span Juan Worm comes from our good friend Brad Miller down in Southern Colorado. This is a pretty crafty little pattern using Span Flex, aka Flexi Floss, Super Floss and the like as a body material to create a squirmy little worm pattern that is just different enough from the norm to garner some pretty consistent finned attention. Brad threw in a couple of clear glass beads to add a bit of weight and sparkle and came up with a pattern that has been really coming on strong. Grab a few hooks, some beads and thread and a few different colors of Super Floss and go to town with this one. Red, brown, hot pink, orange and purple have all been hot colors and have been catching fish all over.
