Foam is Home

8 comments / Posted on / by

There’s no reason to write a novel about today’s fly fishing tips & technique post.

It’s a good idea for all trout fishermen to get in the habit of always locating the highest concentrations of foam before fishing a stretch of water. In simple terms, foam lines and bubbles tell anglers where the current is moving, and where the food is collecting and floating down the river. You’ll always find fish where the most food is drifting down the river, and more times than not, that’s where you’ll want to be drifting your flies. I’m very religious about locating where the highest concentrations of foam are drifting before I make my first presentation. When my eyes spot the highest density of white bubbles, I wisper the words, “Foam is Home”, and present my fly with confidence. Give this tip a try next time you’re out trout fishing.

Keep it Reel,

  1. I like it…short, sweet and very accurate! Interesting angle on your photograph. I’ve noticed a lot of shutterbug taking images off centered and angled. I suck at it but continue to try and figure out that technique. It’s good that we have trash cans on DSLR’s these days instead of film. Allows for a lot more experimentation.

    Cool site!

    • Sharptail,

      We tend to be lengthy on our posts and I thought our followers would appreciate me getting straight to the point. It didn’t allow me to go over every angle but sometimes thats just over kill.


  2. I am sure you know this … I find large predatory browns love foam in eddies and semi-stagnant side pockets etc. It’s like slapping a bass bug down when a large fly hits the foam and it explodes. One of my favorite forms of entertainment …

  3. Definitely a good idea. Before I step foot in the water I look the area over, for bubbles, water depth, fish rising, emerging bugs, flies etc then decide wher and what to fish. Always starting on a outer edge and working my way towards the water I really want my fly to hit.
