Steelhead Flies
 
  Grabflies.com offers thousands of the highest quality Steelhead flies available from custom tied flies by Jeff Layton, and Fish Magnet Flies. To the best commercial ties by AquaFlies, and FishMadMan.
 
Steelhead fly design has changed drastically in the past ten years. Grabflies has the newest and greatest flies for Steelhead and Salmon fishing in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia - BC fishery, and the Great Lakes. Maximize your chances of catching fish with better 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.

ev·o·lu·tion
noun
noun: evolution; plural noun: evolutions
1.
the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
synonyms:Darwinism, natural selection
"his interest in evolution"
  • the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
    "the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution"
  • I designed EVO so it can be fished with either a Skagit or Scandi line. I use a lot of the same proven color patterns that I know work but every fly pattern has it own silhouette, movement, sinkability rate, and castability.

    EVO Mini is 2 inches long. Easy to cast. A good summer and fall Steelhead fly.

    Stu's Jungle Tail Turbo Cone, Black/Blue

    These new wide-profile cones create a turbo vortex at the front of a tube fly. The turbo cone gives the fly a unique swimming action. The action combined with the soft materials, which pulsate to mimic breathing, produces a fly that drives fish crazy. Whether fishing in the slowest or hardest of currents, the fly will move and pulsate like no other pattern. In addition to the unique movements, the turbo cone also provides a little bit of weight to help get the fly down. Our Turbo Cone Tube Flies are tied on a 1.25-inch tube with a 10mm turbo cone.

    Comes with Size 2 trailing hook.

    The Hoh Magnet

    The Hoh Magnet by Fish Magnet Flies, Dave Robinson

    My brother and I recently went to the Skeena river for the first time for Summer run fish. We had some pretty good Intel on a few runs and techniques. One thing that my source stressed was that if we waded out past our ankles that we were fishing too far out! Man was he right! It took me a few days to catch up to my brother who was fishing left handed and close because of tennis elbow in his right arm. He was really getting into the fish, hitting 4 steelhead the first day on a (Fish Magnet Summer Methow)! The biggest problem was all of the plucks, and short strikes from traveling fish. I was a zero with lots of on offs until the third day when I put on a sink 3 on my Rage head and started swinging it into the beach. Then my trip really began as I managed some nice fish mimicking my brother with a Fish Magnet Summer series Methow fly* that proved very good for Steelhead and Coho.

    Flash forward a couple of weeks and the same trip with Jeff at Grabflies. Fishing has been tough all over and the Skeena was no exception this year with a near record low steelhead run. We were going to have to work hard and step up to be successful. This time it was me that hit the ground running having learned my lesson! Prior to the trip I worked on a fly that would be smaller, darker, casts easily on a light polyleader and moves with very little current while showing off a red bead by the hook that would hopefully give the fish a point of attack so the hookup rate would go up with the fast traveling Skeena fish.

    It is basically an April Vokey Sugar Pop fly without the Rhea and an added black rabbit zonker tail with the flash right on top of the wing. Introducing the (Sugar Bunny) Man this fly really fit the bill. I could have called it the Labrador retriever because the tail looks like a dogs tail wagging the flash back and forth. Winner Winner Steelhead dinner!

    I had many grabs and fish on and lost along with a couple of dandy mid to upper teen steelhead caught the first two days. We think the Coho were the plucking fish, but we also lost some big steelhead deep into the battle.

    Jeff soon learned his lesson as I did, as he said "keeping one foot on the bank" and hit three steelhead on his third day, fishing a light tip and a light nice moving fly called the (Egg Dropping Methow Rhea Taco) one of the fish took him down the river and got off at the bank that we dubbed the Kispiox buck because of his 20# + size and nasty demeanor.

    Jeff also caught a some on a lightly weighted (Skagit Methow Leech) which is always a good fly to tie on.

    Later in the week the river cleared up some and the fish moved out from the bank and I fished another new fly that was incredibly successful, hooking three steelhead in one run on the final morning. Jeff and I managed a double as well, each catching a nice mid teen chromer!  I'm dubbing my new fly "the  Hoh Magnet" It is a highly visible mostly black fly with a dark blue flash wing and Lady Amhurst barbs that says "bite me" I will be adding it to the Fish Magnet fly collection as soon as I can tie some up and get them to Jeff to be available.

    See (customer photos) and view the awesome wild steelhead and the flies that we used to catch each!

    Greg's Kriller, Red

    Greg's Kriller

    Constructed on the banks of the Kanektok River the killer krill, or Kriller, was designed for maximum castabilty as well as its flaring motion when swinging across hydraulic “fences” in the water column. With the weight of the dumbbell eyes at the back of the shank, the Kriller swings deep with more of a downward-diagonal profile than most traditional patterns. A devouring size for both chrome Chinook and Steelhead, having the eyes closer to the hook attracts some of the most aggressive eats you can find near tidewater!

    TDF Bead Head Chartreuse Bug, Nymph

In the rivers of the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest, nymphing is quickly becoming the go-to method for many anglers fishing for steelhead. The hooks used for our nymphs are stout enough to hold the heaviest steelhead or the sea run browns of Tierra del Fuego.

    Klickitat Summer Chartreuse Peekaboo

    Klickitat Summer Chartreuse Peekaboo by Fish Magnet Flies.

    Hot summer Steelhead have been in the river a while, getting lethargic and slow moving in the warming lower oxygen water. I experienced this recently after three days of soft repeated bumps short grabs and poorly hooked fish on fuller dressed Klickitat Sunrise Summer flies.

    I decided to switch gears by trying this sparsley dressed fly with a chartreuse peekaboo ice dub body. I trimmed it up a bit more leaving no dressing past the small razor sharp #4 Owner hook.

    With one day left I fished down a run I had gotten some short tugs on the day before. As it swung into the soft water, same scenario...bump bump tug and this time some weight! Setting the hook hard ended with a nice 12 lb summer wild fish hooked deep in the nose! The fly...

    • 2.5" long to back off the #4 Owner hook
    • Sparsely dressed no longer than the hook
    • Trimmed marabou and fox shoulder on the bottom side to expose body colors.
    • Easy casting even with a Skandi setup.
    • Any color is fine as long as it's PURPLE!
    • Also see Grabflies EVO version. Deadly and proven.

    Fish Magnet Summer Series, Methow - Product Image
    Click for larger image

    Fish Magnet Summer Series, Methow

    These flies are for early summer through fall and are a smaller version of my Fall flies. These flies run about 2.5 inches. The Body colors are peekaboo and come in and out of view as the fly undulates in the water currents. When these flies hit slow water they open up and get very squidy or spidery that fish really seem to dig. This last year or so I have really been targeting the slower water next to a faster seam and the Fish Magnet Flies have evolved to target these fish. I also like the looks of these in faster head of run water because not only do they move well in it but lift out of the water to set your anchor and cast well.

    As they are smaller with less materials, they are also cheaper. I still use as much full length ostrich hurl , marabou, and grizzly hackle that I can to maximize movement. These flies are tied on a heavy streamer shank and are heavy enough without additional weight to sink at about a type 3 to 5 rate, so are perfect for lighter setups as well.

    I offer three different color combinations and are about the only colors I ever use.

    Methow colors, Black/Blue/Green butt - Great for ultra-clear water especially in spring and fall. But also mid-summer as a second choice to the Klickitat Purple/Red. Also great if water temperatures are cold and clear in late fall before going to a bigger fly for winter. This fly is also very effective for early winter conditions on coastal rivers for summer and early winter steelhead.

    Quigley's Dragon Gurgler Brown - Orange

    The Quigley's Dragon Gurgler - Made to spit water


    The Dragon Gurgler wake fly was originally devised by Mr. Bob Quigley.
    This the Quigley’s Dragon Gurgler in a Fishmadman tube version – A wake fly with an attitude.
    Designed to spit water and to be fished with a stop and go motion. The tube will take a variety of
    different hooks and hook settings.


    Fish your Dragon Gurgler with the hook up-side-down


    Some steelhead anglers prefer to fish the hook upside-down on their Quigley’s Dragon Gurgler –
    and to do so in an easy and smart way you may use a so-called egg hook or up-eye hook – as
    seen fitted on the fly in the image. The up-eye hook will enable you to get a different angle on the
    hook and the low-memory medium soft tubing the Gurglers is tied on, is well suited to
    accommodate such a fly fishing method.

    This a 50 – 45-millimeter version… or medium – Equivalent to a fly tied on a # 2 – 4hook.

    Comes with hook.

    riffling hitch system

    Two ways to rig this fly:

    1. Riffling hitch system - see image above

    2. Tie on like regular tube fly - leader down tube, and tie on hook. Push hook up into tube.

These flies are tied on a heavy streamer shank and are heavy enough without additional weight to sink at about a type 3 to 5 rate, so are perfect for lighter setups as well.

    I offer three different color combinations and are about the only colors I ever use.

    Klickitat Sunrise Purple/Red- Name coined by Jeff here at Grablies for its incredible effectiveness on the Klickitat River. This color combo is my first choice starting as early as June and extremely effective through late fall for Steelhead and King Salmon. For some reason, hatchery steelhead really key in on this color as well on heavily fished rivers all over the West Coast.

    Fishmagnet Winter Staple

    While I obviously appreciate using the finest materials in my flies, fishing the Skeena and Bulkley has opened my eyes to what is most important when I comes to catching steelhead...That is movement in slow greasy seams along the bank in dark water and the slow water next to a faster seam in clearer water. With a lot of trial and error it is absolutely hard to beat marabou! It holds its profile in faster water with a good prop, then when it hits slow water, it puffs out and breaths like a living moving critter.

    Winter steelhead are notoriously anorexic, they eat and spit it out. My goals when building this fly to offer for sale was to accomplish these goals,

      1. Offer the best fly for the job at a reasonable price
      2.Maximum movement in the softest of water
      3. Utilize a dark head in the front and a bright bead at the hook eye for a visual "Bite" point to try and avoid the on and off problem of fish on the hang down and in slow water.
    1.  
      • #2 Owner hook on a mono stinger loop
      • Visual bead
      • Rear flashabou
      • Ice Dub body
      • Hidden bead to prop body and weight fly to avoid hanging on the bottom
      • 6 grizzly hackles +-
      • Intruder hackle
      • Marabou
      • Body Flashabou
      • Black Schlappen head
      • Each step is glued off for durability
    2. 4. Offer it in the only two color patterns that I use myself and will be using until something comes along that proves to be better, then I will adapt!

      Description

      Purple/Pink- This is my go to color and I will fish it almost exclusively all winter into the late spring. All my steelhead last winter and spring came on this fly except a couple on the Methow. 3"

      Methow - Maybe the best all-around color pattern we have ever found. It will work in murky water but really shines in clear water, sunny bright days. Killer fly on clear rivers like the Bogi, Quinault, Washougal, Deschutes and the like. 3"

    The Intruder has quickly become one of the most popular steelhead patterns on the West Coast. It is a large fly that was designed by the West Coast steelhead guide Ed Ward, with the help and feedback of fellow anglers Scott Howell, Jerry French, and Dec Hogan. Since its inception, there have been numerous variations, and it is safe to say that it is more of a style of fly rather than a pattern.

     

    Our Sili-Leg Intruders are tied on medium length 35mm Waddington Shanks with 3/16-inch brass eyes. Stock flies come with a Gamakatsu Octopus size 2 hook.

    Fish Magnet Summer Series, Purple

    These flies are for early summer through fall and are a smaller version of my Fall flies. These flies run about 2.5 inches. The Body colors are peekaboo and come in and out of view as the fly undulates in the water currents. When these flies hit slow water they open up and get very squidy or spidery that fish really seem to dig. This last year or so I have really been targeting the slower water next to a faster seam and the Fish Magnet Flies have evolved to target these fish. I also like the looks of these in faster head of run water because not only do they move well in it but lift out of the water to set your anchor and cast well.

    As they are smaller with less materials, they are also cheaper. I still use as much full length ostrich hurl , marabou, and grizzly hackle that I can to maximize movement. These flies are tied on a heavy streamer shank and are heavy enough without additional weight to sink at about a type 3 to 5 rate, so are perfect for lighter setups as well.

    I offer three different color combinations and are about the only colors I ever use.

    Purple with peekaboo Green body- This fly is very effective on east side, inland rivers like the Methow, Wenatchee, Grand Ronde, ClearWater and even the North Umpqua as we found out. Also good in the fall before the river gets cold. It is also a good all-around summer color on most rivers, especially early and late in the day when darker water conditions are present.

    G-Moal - Product Image
    Click for larger image

    G-Moal

    G-Moal = Super Moal. A moal leech tied in two stations. Each station is separated by Flashabou and Guinea hackle (Guinea = the G in G-Moal). The read station requires long guinea hackle not always easy to find. The Guinea helps give the fly a mottled/barred moving hackle and stands out underwater. The Guinea helps give the fly a sea creature/squid look and moves with the rabbit. The Flashabou over the black rabbit core which is the fly’s silhouette is used for color and movement.

    Hook: #2 Owner

    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.

    Spider Leech

    The Spider Leech is a new name for the Rubber Leg K Moal , with the addition of only medium size colored rubber legs and new colors. The name came from the spider leg (fly only has six legs, not eight) look when hanging from my drying rod when I tie them. See photo below.

    Rubber Leg K Moal is a K-Moal with rubber legs added, which is a light version of the Kahuna Leech (shows how bead is hidden)

    This fly has a weighted bead but it is tied in the rear some - hidden. This effects how the fly swims/swings through the river. It has a flatter/level angle. Also the hidden 1/4 inch nickel bead gives the fly more silhouette - bigger shoulder. NEW for 2017 summer. Size: 2.5 inches.

    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.

    Custom Moal Leeches are tied by Grabflies.com in the good old USA. Moal's are tied using the best materials on the market and are tied to last (super glue, Berkley Fireline Braid 20 LB (double over for 40 LB strength) and, quality hooks.

    Great Lakes Spider Leech

    The Spider Leech is a new name for the Rubber Leg K Moal, with the addition of only medium size colored rubber legs and new colors. The name came from the spider leg (fly only has six legs, not eight) look when hanging from my drying rod when I tie them. See photo below.

    This fly is a good Sculpin imitation.

    Rubber Leg K Moal is a K-Moal with rubber legs added, which is a light version of the Kahuna Leech (shows how bead is hidden)

    This fly has a weighted bead but it is tied in the rear some - hidden. This effects how the fly swims/swings through the river. It has a flatter/level angle. Also the hidden 1/4 inch nickel bead gives the fly more silhouette - bigger shoulder. NEW for 2017 summer. Size: 2.5 inches.

    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.

    Custom Moal Leeches are tied by Grabflies.com in the good old USA. Moal's are tied using the best materials on the market and are tied to last (super glue, Berkley Fireline Braid 20 LB (double over for 40 LB strength) and, quality hooks.

    The Quigley's Dragon Gurgler - Made to spit water


    The Dragon Gurgler wake fly was originally devised by Mr. Bob Quigley.
    This the Quigley's Dragon Gurgler in a Fishmadman tube version - A wake fly with an attitude.
    Designed to spit water and to be fished with a stop and go motion. The tube will take a variety of
    different hooks and hook settings.


    Fish your Dragon Gurgler with the hook up-side-down


    Some steelhead anglers prefer to fish the hook upside-down on their Quigley's Dragon Gurgler -
    and to do so in an easy and smart way you may use a so-called egg hook or up-eye hook - as
    seen fitted on the fly in the image. The up-eye hook will enable you to get a different angle on the
    hook and the low-memory medium soft tubing the Gurglers is tied on, is well suited to
    accommodate such a fly fishing method.

    This a 50 - 45-millimeter version... or medium - Equivalent to a fly tied on a # 2 - 4hook.

    Fish Magnet Single Shank Winter Flies

    My most versatile winter fly.
    Tied on a long heavy streamer shank with a hidden small bead. These are all tied at 4" and perfect in most conditions except for extreme dark, or dirty water. They don't move quite as well as the articulated flies but the full length materials, especially the grizzly hackle are very squid like and has been proven over and over again by me and all of team Grabflies with the Grabflies Skagit leach. This is my version of that fly with Rhea and longer and more Grizzly tentacles.

    • Purple/pink- glacial, stained to green water. Great fly. Fish below was caught on this fly in lower B.C. 3/1/17. In green water 4' visibility.
    • Black/pink- dark dirty water to green or even clear water but really shines in water that requires a full sillouette on coastal water. This fly is Chrome in the bank!
    • Methow black/ blue/green with red bead by hook eye- the perfect fly for low clear cold water. This color proven and responsible for many many fish up to 24 pounds. Also best fly ever on clear inland rivers like the Methow, Wenatchee, lower Deschutes b run fish, Clearwater. Just a very versatile fly.
    • Methow blue/green- same as above in every way without the red focus point bead. Clear water dream fly.
     
    This 35" Chromer savagely grabbed a purple/ pink with 4' visibility in green water. Wild fish are a treasure!

The Ultra Sonic Cone adds some weight to the fly, but is still very easy to lift out of the water due to the venting holes, while maintaining the capability to create a vortex behind the disc, allowing soft materials to swim freely instead of collapsing in hard current.
