Quality Modern & Traditional Trout Flies and Materials
F.A.B.s and Boobies
FABs otherwise known as Foam Arsed Blobs feature a foam cylinder tail.
Because the fly has a foam cylinder butt for a tail it makes the fly slightly buoyant, if fished on a sinking line it will give a twitchy motion when retrieved which is deadly for Rainbows.
It can be fished in a number of ways, the most popular being fished as a point fly on a sinking line with buzzers on the droppers.
Long slow pull, leave still for a few seconds to allow the fab to lift in the water then pull again and keep repeating until you retrieve line back. Takes can be vicious at times.
Can Also be fished on a floating line commonly known as “The Washing Line Method” with buzzers suspended from it.
