About the Snail Trout Fly
Snails can make a great mid to late summer pattern and can be fished either as a floating snail or let them sink when conditions cause fish to sit at the bottom.
If you notice snails floating on the surface use a Floating Line and a long leader and watch the line for the take, usually a gentle draw.
Snails can varying from lentil up to large pea in size.
Fly Fishing is all about imitating the food source of the fish so if you notice your catches have been eating snails, try using snails as bait.
