Pattern Description
The Barr Bouface is a simple little baitfish/leech pattern from the tiny little fly factory that resides inside John Barr's head. This fly is quick to tie, durable and catches fish. I can't think of much more you could ask for. I like to fish the Bouface on a dropper behind another heavy streamer pattern in a river, sometimes dead drifting the whole rig through likely looking holes and runs. This fly can pass for many different food items and as such, can be fished in many ways. I also really like this fly in lakes, where it's slim silhouette casts well and presents a slinky profile to the fish.
