The Wine Booby

I 💜 Boobys

I love me some stillwater so I started fishing the Booby shortly after I started to experiment with various stillwater lines that weren't a floating line with indicator. This variation of the Booby came to be because of my recent obsession with fishing Pyramid Lake. Wine has become one of my confidence patterns out there so it was inevadable that some wine colored boobys were going to find their way into my fly box. Another issue I ran into was finding a hook that I was confident in when having the potential to run into a 20lb+ trout. The Hanak 900 was the answer! I've had my best luck using a size 10 or 8. I've been impressed with the various Hends products we've brought into the shop and the Booby Eyes are no exception. They compress well and are very durable, even when encountering jumbo Cutty teeth.

If you fish stillwater and haven't tried these out on your Full-Sink line, I say give it a shot! They are really fun to fish and the takes can be vicious. Some of my other favorite color combos are: all black with red flash, all olive with red flash/booby eyes and fluorescent white. Here is a fish that came on the Wine Booby last trip:
