The San Juan Worm imitates aquatic worms. They are generally one to two inches in length and lives in the riverbed. Their appearance is very similar to earth-worms or miniature nightcrawlers. To provide additional weight to the fly - wrap the hook with red wire before tying on the chenille. I like to dead drift the fly near the bottom with an indicator or tight line presentations.
