Orvis Ratings and Reviews

Gulley Worm

Action, color, and flash give this fly pattern the goods to attract bass, panfish, pike, and more. Strip it back while twitching and jigging it to elicit strikes. A great go-to fly when fishing for warm water species. Size 1/0.

Could be good....,
May 3, 2013
By: Ethan5678
from North Carolina
"This fly has the potential to be good, if orvis would actually add some sort of dumb-bell eyes or a cone head for weight... I've caught picky bass with it unweighted but I've tied similar stuff with added weight so it can actually be fished like a plastic worm... It could be good, but in it's current design it takes too long to sink and can't be fished as effectively as I like."

One Hit Wonder,
August 30, 2012
By: Ossian
from Republic of Texas
"I cast this into a lake with my 6wt and instantly got a hit and a 3lb large mouth. Then in a combined 6 hours of fishing over the next couple of weeks never got Wonderanother hit. The fly got pretty ragged before I hooked a rock and lost it."

No good,
June 2, 2011
By: BlackBear
"I have been fly fishing for bass, small and large, and this fly has never caught a fish. I too have fished at all water levels and never got a hit. I consider myself pretty good fisherman but not with this fly. Not sure why it is top rated"

"Maybe chucking this fly with my big ole 8 wt is taking a tool on this fly or it's just poor quality. I have one of the purple flies that began to fray after just a few casts and the tip of one of the red/black flies came off after just a few casts. Moreover, I have only ever gotten a few hits off of any of this fly. I fished it surface, sub and deep with weight."
