Steelhead Flies
 
I have been ask this question many times - if you could only choose one fly to fish for Steelhead with, what would it be? Answer Moal Leeches.


Winter Steelhead Flies (Click Here) - Think big, large profile, lots of movement (a fly that will motivate a steelhead to move in cold water). Other than that summer steelhead flies can work in the winter, and winter steelhead flies can work in the summer. I use Moal leeches all year round with excellent results. An exception to the above would be for very clear low water in the winter, then think small bright and flashy.

    Pink with Blue Flash Moal Leech

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

     The combination of rabbit fur which has incredible life in the water and flashabou creates an illuminated attraction for fish. A real winner!

    GTL: Grizzly Tailed Leech

    A new pattern created by Grabflies, Jeff Layton. 2015/2016 winter has been the season of grizzly hackle into my patterns. It gives the fly a mottled, lighting effect, that Steelhead seem to love.

    Solitude's Signature Series Intruder - Steelhead Fly


    About the Signature Series Intruder, by Scott Howell

    The Signature Series Intruder was not a simple case of sitting down at the vise one evening and creating a new pattern. It started back in the early ’90s with a circle of guides at an Alaskan wilderness lodge. The first Intruder-style fly was the brainchild of Ed Ward, and was originally designed for king salmon. This shank-style fly was a solution for creating huge, pluglike silhouettes that couldn’t be achieved on conventional fly hooks.

    While fishing these flies for kings, it was impossible not to notice the bycatch of huge Alaskan rainbows. It didn’t take long for us to realize that if rainbows couldn’t resist the fly, steelhead might have a similar problem. Unfortunately, we’d have to endure a grueling summer of guiding before we’d get to swim these patterns in steelhead waters.

    That September I crammed into a truck with Ed Ward and Jerry French and headed for B.C. with my drift boat in tow. Despite low-water conditions, we fished the Intruder—and it worked.

    The standout prototype was an olive version Ed had created. At the time, we thought it looked a lot like a sculpin. In actuality, I think it was Jerry’s animated description that fit it best: With fly in hand—pretending to swim it through the air—he said the fish must think it looks like some kind of intruder. It all took off from there.

    Testing Grounds

    The next winter, I fished with Ed on the Skagit, and he asked me if I was still using big flies. I proudly showed him my newest creation, only to have it dwarfed by what looked like a small bird tied to his line. From that point on, our Intruders grew bigger and bigger until one day I could barely cast them. We never found a size too big for the steelhead but we’ve since backed off on the giant sizes to end up with a pattern that still provides a large silhouette with limited materials, so it sinks and swims well, and casts easily.

    Intruder development has been an ongoing process since day one. Introductions of new and different materials have defined its evolutionary stages. The first Intruders were tied with marabou, and were basically large knock-offs of George Cook’s marabou flies. From marabou the fly progressed to schlappen and then turkey feathers, which provided exceptionally long hackles.

    I thought Intruders would always be tied with turkey feathers but about the time I’d collected a lifetime’s worth, Ed found and started tying with ostrich feathers, which were even longer. I’ve since narrowed my Intruders down to two different styles in an assortment of colors. The Signature Series Intruder has an ostrich hackle/saddle shellback, which creates a large silhouette, with a bulky hair collar behind the front hackles.

    Marabou and rabbit-strip flies can be heavy and difficult to cast once wet. The Intruder’s design solves both problems. First, the large hackle dressed over a fairly sparse body produces a substantial silhouette with less material. This allows the hackle to swim freely, giving the flies lifelike action. Second, since the Intruder’s materials don’t hold water as readily as rabbit strips or marabou, they are easier to cast.

    Another crucial Intruder component is its heavy dumbell eyes. Lead or tungsten eyes allow sparsely dressed patterns to sink fast. It is also important to note that the Intruder’s design makes it less buoyant—with less water resistance—than more heavily dressed flies. This means Intruders rise slower in the water column once they’re under tension and swinging.

    Confidence is Crucial

    The Intruder is now my mainstay for nearly all steelhead fishing. Even under normal summer water conditions, I find natural-colored Intruders catch more steelhead than the same old Green Butt Skunks or other traditional patterns. Whether trying to pull fish in cold water, or just knowing I’m throwing something different with the Intruder, I always have confidence in it.

    When fishing the Intruder, cast slightly upstream and make a big upstream mend. This takes tension off the fly and allows it to sink down to the fish’s level. Just as the line is about to come tight, kick another small mend in it, straightening the remaining slack line. It’s important to get this second mend in before the line comes tight and the fly starts to swing. Otherwise, you’ll lift the fly out of the zone.

    I’m a big believer in not overmending the line. Once the fly is fishing, let it swim. Follow the line around with your rod tip and wait for the pull!

    Lady Carolyn by Solitude Fly, Size 5

    The Lady Caroline spey fly is a traditional Atlantic Salmon fly whose roots appear to be more or less veiled in mystery. Its name derives from Lady Caroline Gordon-Lennox, who was the daughter of the Duke of Richmond and Gordon at Gordon Castle, Banffshire County, Bellie Fochabers Parish, Scotland. Legendary among the community of Atlantic Salmon flyfishers, it has also developed a loyal following among the pursuants of Pacific Salmon and Steelhead. (Classic Steelhead Fly)

    Green Butt Skunk, with flash under-wing

    Green Butt Skunk, with flash under-wing, tied by Spirit River.

    This particular Skunk pattern is so named because it has a white Calf wing over a black (chenille) body. It was a very popular pattern from the 1960's on and here on the North Umpqua it is still extremely popular. Needless to say it works very well. These are considered our Classic Series of Steelhead flies and some are equally effective for Salmon.
    All our Steelhead flies are effective and tied to exacting standards, with either calf tail wings, supple Marabou or Saddle Hackle. Many have dubbed bodies that are properly tapered and they also have schlappen Saddle which is soft enough to swim in the currents. All are done on our own chemically sharpened needle point SS-99 steel/salmon hook. All eyes are epoxy coated so they are small and smooth.

    Steelhead often feed on squid in the ocean. When they migrate close to the coast before and during entering river estuaries, they will often feed on Sand Shrimp to fatten themselves up before their big trip into their native streams.

    Steelhead fly fishermen are always tying and innovating their patterns to imitate these shrimp, while at the same time give the fly plenty of action to lure a "grab".

    Materials starting from hook forward:

    Sand Shrimp
    Sand Shrimp coloring

    Truder Moals

    A variation of String Leech Intruder

    Inspired by Kristian Rapisarda

    Tied like a Moal Leech : Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string (Fireline Braid) with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well. Plus the addition of Dyed Pearl Diamond Braid in-between Rabbit (this helps lighten up the fly), Rhea and grizzly hackle tips + Real Eyes Plus for barbell eyes and Ice Dub.

    Great Fly for the bright sun

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

    The combination of rabbit fur which has incredible life in the water and flashabou creates an illuminated attraction for fish. A real winner!

    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Flashabou and rabbit wrapped around a string go together. Moal Leeches have great movement in the water. They wiggle and undulate, which moves the flashabou in wave like motion reflecting colorful light waves as the fly swings across the river. Two Toned (color) Flash Moals have two different colors of flashabou tied in. The tail color is tied in after half the fly is wrapped with rabbit. The head flashabou is tied with a length of 2/3's the fly length. This works much better that two colors of flashabou tied in together at the cone.

    Silvey's Extractor, Black/Blue have become a modern symbol of steelhead fanaticism. The one supposed drawback, the curvature of the material, makes the flies look unkempt and gaudy. A fly with a bad hair day. Once the flies are in the water, the material moves like crazy, it is so good, we couldn't believe it. They cast like a fly half the size. Fishing the fly extensively revealed they don't tangle or foul, they swim beautifully. A fly with a large silhouette that cast well and swims with the most motion we've seen in any large fly. Once again Brian Silvey takes an idea and follows it to it's stellar conclusion. Size: 2.75" (2 3/4 inches)

    Two colors: Olive and Black

    Size 2 The popularity of this fly started in Alaska with the Dolly Lama. This is a Dorian inspired version of the old one made much better. It capitalizes on the conehead, Barred Dos-Tone rabbit zonker strips, and subtle flash. It is a devil to tie but well worth it if your going to seriously fish it. If your taking a expensive trip to Alaska then be sure to have these with you. Keep them to yourself as guides and your buddies will do anything they can to get their hands on some.

    Flash Fish Taco

    Same Profile as the Fish Taco but tied with more Flashabou.

    Jeff Hickman designed the Fish Taco Spey fly specifically for Steelhead and Salmon. When Jeff Hickman gets hungry he thinks of one of his favorite things to eat - fish tacos.

    The Fish Taco was designed to be un-weighted and easy to cast with lots of movement.

    Like Fish Tacos - a favorite dish for hungry fly fishermen, and every cook has their own recipe. Grabflies has its recipe and custom ties these Fish Tacos by hand in Washougal, Washington.

    Grabflies likes to tie Fish Tacos that are spicy and hot, and full and juicy. These Fish Tacos are delicious offerings for Steelhead and Salmon.

    Since these Tacos are custom tied, Grabflies offers them in many different flavors and tie ups. You can get them in almost every color, and if you want to fish them deeper you can add Hot Cones.

    Jeff Hickman likes to fish Purple Tacos in the morning, bright colors during the day, and black in the evening/dark.

    Size: 2.5 - 3 inches

    Size 2 trailing hook, hung with 30 lb. Fire Wire loop.

    These custom tied Fish Taco's are tied in un-weighted thread head, and medium weighted cones. The cone head Fish Taco's are now tied like the Fish Taco Supreme (click here) .

    King Intruder Leech, Blue

    This pattern came from Grabflies "King Intruder Leech, Red". I have caught a lot of Steelhead on this pattern. Also see Custom Blue Flash Moal Leech, and Coho Salmon.

    Fly is tied using black cross cut rabbit strip tied on braid line like a Moal Leech, then lots of Blue Rhea spun on, followed by Blue Flashabou, and Blue Guinea and red bead cone. The Black Rabbit core gives this fly lots of silhouette and animates the flashabou.

    Moal leeches are tied entirely on a string with a trailer hook at the back. This gives the fly greater action than a fly tied on a rigid hook. More fish are landed with the Moal fly as well.

    The combination of rabbit fur which has incredible life in the water and flashabou creates an illuminated attraction for fish. A real winner!

    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Flashabou and rabbit wrapped around a string go together. Moal Leeches have great movement in the water. They wiggle and undulate, which moves the flashabou in wave like motion reflecting colorful light waves as the fly swings across the river. Two Toned (color) Flash Moals have two different colors of flashabou tied in. The tail color is tied in after half the fly is wrapped with rabbit. The head flashabou is tied with a length of 2/3's the fly length. This works much better that two colors of flashabou tied in together at the cone.
