The Beavertail, designed by Doug Brewer, can be used for everything from trout patterns like Salmon flies and Hoppers to big foam bass flies. A versatile, generic terrestrials shape that includes a built-in thorax and head. Use with multiple layers foam to get a buggy, substantial body for your next foam fly!
