Here’s a fine article by long-time Florida Keys angler Pat Ford on the his quest to find and fish a palolo worm hatch — something that remains challenging even for the better guides. Along the way Ford offers some excellent tips for gear and strategy and a nice summary of worm biology (though he does happen to mis-guess the type of hatch he sees with R.T. Trosset). “‘Two blue eyes with little horns that stick up vertically and two smaller horns that stick out on the sides. Arrowhead-shaped tail. The aft end is the “motor.” Small fins run along its length. The head has two stingers. Charming little creatures!'” In Shallow Water Angler magazine.
