Water Boatman (Fall and then again in the Spring)

Waterboatmen are about to become relevent in the shallows of your pond or stillwater.

Water Boatman

“The shallows hold many nymphs that trout will feed on. One insect that is often overlooked by fisherman is the Water Boatman. Since it is an air breathing creature, it has to return to the surface of the water to get oxygen. They are commonly found in water depths of 15’ or less. Their swimming characteristics are quite erratic, going in zig zag directions. They are very fast swimmers and can dive rapidly. Keep this in mind when fishing an imitation. When fishing the water boatman pattern, hits by fish are often very sudden and hard. It is a very fun and successful pattern to use.”

These are an available pattern in the Spring and now the Fall. Some species dive into the water surface to lay eggs and others rise (sipping oxygen at the surface) and dive quickly back to the vegetation.
