About the Snail Trout Flies Fly

Snails can make a great pattern, either in the mid-summer heat or at the heart of winter, as they are a staple food source for fish; ever noticed any snails in the stomach of a fish?

In the summer months, 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.

During the colder months when fish are retreating in the depths of the water, snails are also clinging onto the water's bed. If nothing is working, try attaching a snail to a weighted Sinking Line to force the foam snail to sink down to the depths where the fish are also sitting.

Snails can varying from lentil up to large pea in size.

Expert Tip:

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.
