White Snake Booby #10

One fly that has rolutionized many aspects of deep water trout fly fishing is the Booby fishing fly. Boobies are deadly on stillwaters both large and small. These have a unique action all of their own when retrieved in short, sharp movements.

With White Snake Booby #10 use a retrieve, pause, retrieve pause method. On the retrieve the White Snake Booby #10 sinks but on the pause it floats up because of the buoyant eyes of closed-cell foam at the head of the White Snake Booby #10. It is an action that is lethally attractive to rainbow trout and highly visible as the fly moves up and down. Fish the White Snake Booby #10 on a fast-sinking line and an ultra short leader. in this way this fly can be presented just above the bottom, where the fish are often lying during early season. This buoyancy and the tail give it a tremendous enticing action.

Fishing Tips with White Snake Booby #10

  • Start by White Snake Booby #10 deep and slow in the morning, then as the day warms up start to fish your booby higher in the water. If you are catching weed use a longer leader to keep the White Snake Booby #10 higher in the water.
  • Try two different different boobies including White Snake Booby #10 on the same cast, some days the point fly will work but on others days the the dropper catches the fish. Use a tip of mid action rod, definitely not use a soft fly rod as you will be unable to set the hook at a distance.
  • Use a non or low stretch backing to help set the hook when fishing at distance. This will help your catch rate by converting more takes into fish.Fluorocarbon is best for distance setting of hooks as it does not stretch, standard monofilament can stretch considerably.
  • Striking sideways will produce a faster direct contact rather than the traditional upward strike against the fly. Leave your line sinking for 30 seconds when fishing deep.
  • Give one big strip to create a disturbance before starting a slow figure of eight retrieve. In winter the main diet of Rainbow Trout will be fry or small black buzzers. Use a white or dark colored booby instead of a bright colored one.
