    Default Green Weenies

    I am getting ready to tie up some green weenies. What are your favorite sizes?, is it a beadhead and what color bead, and how long is the tail and is it twisted? I have seen a lot of versions and I am trying to get a consensus.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Tom, I have tied them with a black tungsten bead head as well as some I have painted red. I really can't tell a difference between the number of strikes and the color of the bead.

    I usually tie with a #14 with a small loop at the tail end and a black bead head. With Chartruese being the main color, though there are some yellowish tan inch worms up there, but haven't really tied up any - the chartruese works well enough..

    Hey guys- Try a Chartruese San Juan worm and see how it works. I've been putting a small black beadhead on an Aberdeen hook, placing one singed end of the "San Juan worm" in the bead, tieing 3 Krystal flash legs behind the bead then leaving the rest trailing. I started a designing a Green (Rockworm) caddis larvae pattern then got playing with it and lengthened the vernille to imitate the catepillar (worm).
