On their day and fished in the right way they can be very productive . . . as can any lure.

Started fishing them about 5 years ago through the winter on Small Stillwaters, Farmoor and Draycote.....Pink, White, black are my ‘go to’ colours. They are probably one of the most effective patterns going in the cold months.....Devastating!

I’ve fished them on everything from a floater to a Di7.....Snake Booby is also a cracking variation as well. Think Rob Edmonds might have been one of the first to add foam on the front.

Best fished on a single hook (cut the front one off at the bend) as it avoids wrapping around it self. Good fly to have around on it's day.

You can tell that I spend to much time on the lap top.

Check this out it looks to me to be a unquie way of tying what we would call a snake fly and they call a leech fly (I think).
Its not very well filmed as some of the action takes place of camera.

Very Happy

Must be worth tying one up and see what it looks like.
