USE FOAM DRY FLIES

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Where scum gath­ers in shel­tered bays, so do many ter­res­tri­als at the sur­face, mak­ing dry fly tac­tics a favoured method. It’s a para­dox I know, but de­spite an oily slick, many con­ven­tional dry fly pat­terns (CDC flies in par­tic­u­lar) will quickly be­come swamped. In such ar­eas, it’s best to use foam-based ter­res­trial pat­terns like a Foam Bee­tle or FAPT (Foam All Pur­pose Ter­res­trial).

With a foam tho­rax, the FAPT con­tin­ues float­ing in the most ad­verse of con­di­tions.
