The San Juan Worm is arguably one of the most used and successful patterns for catching carp. Look in any carper’s fly box and you’ll likely find a handful of these bad boys, they are a go-to fly. Coming in many variations, sizes and colors, it is unsure what exactly carp find so appealing with this fly but they are guilty of a love affair with this simple to tie pattern. Carp like this pattern so much in fact, that after catching three or four fish with a single fly, the chenille used to form the body of this pattern often becomes tattered and ragged, nearly falling off the hook. I set out in search of a more durable San Juan Worm one that would hold up to over a dozen fish, have enough weight to get down in moderate river currents, and would still be effective long after the chenille had worn from the body: the wire bodied San Juan Worm -Armored Car Version.
