Panfish in ponds, brookies in fast freestone streams, or just opportunistic trout, the Hi-Vis Foam Beetle is a fly that can nearly do it all. The Hi-Vis Foam Beetle Fly is a pretty simple fly, yet it gives a very realistic imitation to most terrestrial beetles. Made with Krystal flash legs and foam construction, this fly splats on the surface and floats very well, and its added hi-vis orange accent allows good visibility and prevents you from missing strikes.
The perfect fly to fish from late spring into fall, the Hi-Vis Foam Beetle can take on moving or still water, whether it’s a small limestone stream or a backyard pond. The most common sizes are 12-16, and fishing it is pretty straightforward--either dead drift it, drop a small nymph off of the bottom, or give it the occasional twitch, whatever you choose, chances are that the fish will approve. Most freshwater fish love beetles and they key in on them whenever the wind pushes them off of the trees, shrubs, and grass, so it’s a good idea to have a few of Hi-Vis Foam Beetles on hand everywhere you go.
