Product Image Foam Beetle

Foam Beetle


A size 18 pattern representing a terrestrial beetle. The under body is tied with peacock herl, the over body is black closed cell foam tied in at the eye and clipped short to form the head. Black feather fibres are tied in under the foam and forced down to make the legs.  Cast this fly under trees and by bank side vegetation, even when fish are not rising this pattern proves successful on bringing fish to the surface. Fish it “dead drift” with the occasional twitch to simulate the beetle struggling in the surface film. This fly will work on both rivers and lakes from May to October.
