Hise's Waxy the Waxworm


Product Description

Hise's Waxy the Waxworm- Another Dave Hise original. Hise's Waxy is a deadly waxworm imitation, especially for winter trout and steelhead. Notice the legs on the critters underside? Pretty cool. Coated with Deer Creek UV Resin for a non tacky and durable finish (DEER CREEK DIAMOND FINE UV RESIN - Thin Version).

I have heard conflicting reports about what a waxworm actually is but have come to the belief that it is the larvae of a certain moth, Pyralidae. In the wild, these creatures live as nest parasites in bee colonies where they eat the cocoons, pollen, shed skins of bees; but, they also chew through beeswax. Fish love 'em but they probably wont ever see them in their natural environment. Waxy is most effective when dead drifted under an indicator or high stick nymphed through the runs and pools. Designed and hand tied by Dave Hise. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.

Size: 6, 8. $8.95 per fly.

Waxy is featured in the Fall 2014 Issue of Southern Culture on the Fly. Check it out here.

    Hands down the most realistic waxworm I've ever found. I use for panfish, trout and whitefish. Very effective!

    This is by far my favorite fly. Mr. Hise once again doesn’t disappoint with his attention to detail.!This fly takes him a ridiculous amount of time to construct and the proof is in the pudding.

  4. The coolest wax wirm immitation ever! 5 Star Review

    So, this thing is so realistic, it makes me a little squeamish it even tie it on. I keep expecting it to pop open and get wax worm guts on my fingers. Such an awesome tie.

    Browns in our area love wax worms and these are the most lifelike I have seen. Great build-up and color. Worth the wait and cost.
    Thanks Dave!
