Booby Fly Won't Float
I've tied up a bunch of booby flies to use for smallmouth bass.
I used medium and large Rainy floating foam for the heads and #2 and #4 Gamakatsu Aberdeen hooks. I tied in the marabou tails and used chenille for the body.
But when I put them in the sink to test them, as soon as the feather/chenille is wet, the flies sink!
The irony is that in the UK where they use these things for trout, there is controversy because they float so high. But I want mine to float for smallmouth and the darn things sink!
Has anyone else had this problem? Solutions?
