Lateral Cat Boobie
« on: January 07, 2014, 12:00:27 AM »
It has been a hot minute since I've posted a pattern online, sorry for slacking guys.. 

Here is a simple boobie fly that I have had success with on lakes with coastal cutthroat and piscivorous (i.e. black water strain) rainbow trout.  I have switched to using the Hanak 270BL over their 260BL over the past year.  I have found my hook:land ratio go up exponentially and am telling myself it's due to the advanced point on these hooks which literally seems to set itself.



Hook: Hanak H270BL Size 8 or 10
Thread: Black UTC 70
Eyes: Medium Chartreuse Raineys Foam Eyes
Tail: Glowbrite Floss Chartreuse
Rib: Silver Wire
Body: UV Black blended with Peacock Black Ice Dub
Lateral Sides: Large UV Pearl Mylar
Wing: Black Marabou
Wing2: Rainbow Krystal Flash

This pattern when tied using white eyes/marabou, pearl uv ice dub, red mylar, red krystal flash and a red tag has also produced well at times, especially on more tanic lakes..

Great looking pattern Andy! Looks very similar to my version of the Viva Boobie.
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Nice pattern Andy.  I'll have to check out the 270 hook more closely.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Very nice Andy, I have never used one before, how is it fished, still, jerked or slow retrieve? Any other colors? Good job.
There's no life like it!

Hey Alex, on your step by step you showed that you use nylon around the eyes.  What is the purpose behind doing this?  Increased longevity, more takes etc.?
