Ronan's report

Friday 23rd April, 2010

It’s true I am a foam whore, after Blair Spence introduced me to the dark realm of foam flies, with the Club Sandwich a big beautiful leggy splatting foamy monster of a fly, I have never looked back. As Harps was witness to Early Foam Bugs?.

I tie them in all sizes, colours, shapes, some imitating specific insects and some are just stupid big and ugly but and there is always a but, they are very effective. Especially on the slightly less finicky species of trout in this area.

Cutthroat, CuttBows, and Brookies are stupid for them, retarded, to be frank, moth to the light stupid! Rainbows are very willing, I have not yet caught a Brown or Golden trout but it is a matter of time! Even that thick witted knuckle dragging bully of the trout world - the Bull trout has been caught on a Foam fly.

Now don’t get me wrong I am not talking about the little foam post emergers or foam para-post dry fly’s. These things put a bend in your fly rod just hanging off the leader, the reaction they get from the fish is spectacular there is nothing dainty about the take on a bug foam fly, I remember 2 years ago about mid season on the Crow in the upper section when I learned a very valuable lesson, I had a large river Rainbow shoot from the bottom right past my Club Sandwich out of the water to land on it’s side and drown my fly I set the hook with a hard rip and of course the fish was gone when I set and then got my fly out of the trees behind me, we played the same game with the same results and then I sat down to think what the hell was happening it dawned on me that the fish was drowning the fly so I waited, had a drink the tried it again, after about a dozen casts he came up again this time I let him drown the fly and then swing back and take it from about 4in under the water.

He was a stunner firm strong and wild! Then again I might only have been fishing Emergers and Para-post dries!

The fishing season hasn't opened and a fisherman, who doesn't have a license, is casting for trout as a stranger approached and asks "Any luck?"

"Any luck? This is a wonderful spot. I took 10 out of this stream yesterday" he boasts.

"Is that so? By the way, do you know who I am?" asks the stranger.


"Well, meet the new game warden."

"Oh," gulped the fisherman. "Well, do you know who I am?"


"Meet the biggest liar in the Province." .
