Your ticket to hook-ups

A variety of Booby Leeches, Firetails and Sculpins can be your ticket to solid hook-ups even in the coldest weather. Fishing down and across gives the fish a semi broadside view of the fly before it starts working against the current. Try flies with strong contrasts like the Firetail Booby. This fly has a bit of flash in the tail as well, which enhances visibility in the dark and stained waters of winter and early spring. Sculpin Booby flies do well too, pushing a lot of water with the large, soft hackle.
