In March, I tied a foam beetle at the Sowbug Roundup, had a lot of people watch, and gave away many fly bodies. In addition, I asked everyone who used my fly to send me a picture of any fish they caught.

Over the years, I have always made this request. Unfortunately, I never received any photos until now. Below are two pictures of Nathan Bettencourt with a Bream and Bass he caught on a foam beetle. Look closely, and you can see the fly in the Bass’s mouth.

Nate is an excellent fly tier and can be reached at
