Love them or hate them, the Booby fly has become an increasingly popular fly in British Columbia. This fly proves very effective when fish are not necessarily on a heavy feed, and seem to be reluctant when presented other, more natural patterns. This is a simple fly to tie, and only one version of how it can be tied. I am a big believer in the marabou tail, as it provides a lot of movement when stripped through the water.
