    Hello
    I’ve just purchased the “Kindle” version of your “The Booby Fly” book. I find it very interesting and well done.
    The book is based on the application of foam for the “Booby style” of fishing.
    When I go to purchase foam, for this application,I find that there is a selection of both thickness sizes and colors.
    Your book doesn’t make reference to these variables. Do you have guidelines for the size of foam for thickness and length for a specific hook size or pattern?
    Similarly, do you have guidelines for the color of foam?

    Thank you!
    Brian

      Hi Brian,
      Thanks for your kind words. I’m glad you like the book. Choosing the right booby foam eyes for a specific hook is a bit tricky. There are a lot of foam types on the marked. All are made of some kind of closed cell foam, but they vary considerably in density… and in float ability. Furthermore there are an equally impressive amount of hooks on the marked. So… it’s really up to a bit trial and error, to get it perfect. On the pictures in the book, you will get an idea of the right size for a specific hook.
      Remember, that using fluorocarbon leaders (which sinks) will make it a lot more difficult to get the Booby Fly hovering above the sinking line. I prefer classic monofilament nylon for Booby fishing.

      Regarding color choice: It depends on the actual pattern. When imitation is the main goal, I choose eyes, that match the baitfish, shrimp or whatever morsel I’m trying to imitate. When provocation is important, I choose contrasting colors.

      Tight lines

    Hello Michael,

    Do you sell flies? I’m particularly interested in buying the nightwatchman fly.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

      Hi Daniel
      Nope, I don’t sell flies, but you can probably get most professional fly tiers to tie a bunch of nightwatchman for you. Should be pretty easy following the instructions on my Youtube video.
      All the best
      Michael

    Kære Michael Jensen,
    Har endnu engang glædet mig over at læse Flodens Puls. Du kan da om nogen kalde billeder frem på nethinden af en meget gammel lystfisker.
    Da jeg fotograferer en del, er jeg selvfølgelig interesseret i at vide hvilket camera og objektiver du bruger. Mage til skønne billeder er sjældent set i nogen bog.
    De Venligste fiskehilsener og tak for nogle gode oplevelser.
    Martin

    Hej Martin,
    Mange tak for din positive respons på min bog. Det er altid en fornøjelse at høre fra nogle af jer, der læser det jeg har skrevet. Bogen har et par år på bagen, så det er sikkert ikke helt det samme fotogrej jeg bruger i dag – men på det tidspunkt brugte jeg Canon EOS 550D og EOS 600D spejlreflekskamera. I dag bruger jeg Nikon spejlreflekskamera. Objektiverne er et bredt udvalg af 55 mm makro, 105 mm makro, 24-70 mm zoom, 70-300 mm zoom og enkelte faste objektiver. Ingen af mine objektiver eller kameraer er i den dyre ende af skalaen.
    Endnu engang tak for din interesse.
    Mange hilsner
    Michael
