a Wake up Wiggle

as in: “It don’t matter if the fish are hungry or not ’cause when they see me shake my thang the only thing they’ll be thinking about is slurpin’ me down”

here’s the Waking Wiggle beast

waking wiggle

and here’s the Wiggle that’ll wake up the most lethargic fish.

the body and tail are just a variation of a Woolly Bugger and the shell/head is two pieces of sheet foam glued together. simples.
be sure to place a drop of glue behind the hook eye before slipping the foam lip over to keep it in place and keep the fly tracking straight during the retrieve.
as always, play around with colors, sizes and materials.

  1. Love the fly. One question. How is the shell tied in at the rear ?

    • hi Joe,
      shell back is cut out as you can see but with a Y or thin rectangle shape cutout for binding down to the hook.
      hook in vice-
      tie in the tail > tie down shell with the body in direction of the hook bend > wrap underbody > fold-over shell.
      hope this helps and thanks for stopping by,
