Rowley's Water Floatman

Montana Fly Company


Water boatman are like little beetles that live and swim underwater with oar-like legs.  They leave the lake and take to the air during certain times of the year, then return to the water.  When water boatman return to the water, fish Rowley's Water Floatman on a sinking line.  The fly floats so when you begin the retrieve, the fly dives underwater like the real insect.  Fish the Water Floatman any time of the year and hover the fly above weed beds, but don't be caught without a few in the fly box when the boatman are leaving or returning to the water! 

Rowley's Water Floatman is tied on a size 12 hook.
