Fishing Foam Flies for Trout

There are different methods of fishing foam flies for trout. You can use a simple tapered leader with the foam fly, a suspender buzzer or a floating foam fry pattern which can be twiched, sat static or moved across the surface like the natural bait it imitates. Alternatively you can use a droppered leader with multiple flies, you can use for example a buoyant beetle pattern or fry pattern as top dropper with for example buzzers suspended below. The foam fly then acts both as a trout fly in its own right and as a bite indicator if one of the flies on the dropper is taken. These rigs can be used with floating flylines.

Washing Line Rigs

A further alternative use of a foam fly is as part of a Washing Line Rig. This is a rig that more fly fisherman really should try. Use an Intermediate fly line or sinking fly line with a droppered leader. On the point use a foam fly for example a Booby or Foam Arsed Blob and use trout buzzers, bloodworm flies, diawl bach nymphs or other small fly patterns on one or two droppers. The fly line sinks drawing the rig down through the lake. Because the foam fly is on the point this rises in the water lifting the fly leader and the flies on the dropper. You can literally cast this rig and let it sit on the bottom of the lake or reservoirs or with an intermediate rig mid-water and retrieve. This presents the team of flies very close to the bottom and this rig will lift fish when very often other rigs simply do not work. Try the washing line or try one of our pre-made washing line rigs. It really is a deadly trout fishing technique.
