Booby’s Down Deep (Stillwater Pattern)

Whatever..You Just Have to OK?

Whatever..You Just Have to OK?

“The basic method of fishing the Booby is very simple. Use a fast sinking line, I find a shooting head best, no more than 500 cm (24″) of leader to the Booby and cast it out. Give the line plenty of time to sink and pull the fly down to the bottom. Even in only 2 or 3 metres of water this can take 30 seconds or more. If there is any current at all it will take longer. Once the fly has settled retrieve the fly in short, 10 to 20 cm (12″) tugs, pausing between each tug. The pause is important, the fly must be allowed to float back up, because tugging on the line pulls it down.”

A basic nymph, a moving tail and the boobs. Several different ways to affix the boobs.  

 A similar technique can be used with the Skip Morris pattern, The Predator. I have used this pattern in B.C. and it works great. Bottom line get fly down to bottom with sinking line, the fly rises and the retrieve begins. I wrote about this because I recently saw Brian Chan produce a Booby Fly from his stillwater box as an option on a B.C. lake. Some how I had only associated Booby’s with Great Britain stillwaters. There was Chan with a Booby Fly…good enough for me.
