This post is inspired by a whole bunch of photos of this fly that are linked to completely random articles on Pinterest. Yeah, I know, WTF am I doing on Pinterest? There is some good stuff on there, once you sift through the junk. In this case it is a pretty cool looking fly that imitates a cluster of maggots once you get it underwater.
This one is pretty easy to tie, and in fact I’m pretty sure I could tie this cluster of maggots up if I was so inclined. In any event, here are the video instructions for doing it.
