The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
Black and Blue Boobie
An English classic, this fly is pure attractor. Useful when nothing else seems to be working.
It can be tied in almost any colour combination desired. We've used steelhead colours of black and blue here, together with large chartreuse eyes. It's visible in the depths and for us, the colours are known fish takers and means a fly fished with confidence.
Fish it on a full sinking line with heavy tippet, strip hard and be prepared!
