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.

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)

Stu's Jungle Tail Turbo Cone, Pink/Purple

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.

    Rob Crandalls UV2 Devils Candy Blk/Cer

    Tied by Spirit River:

    This is a killer leech pattern tied on a size 2 hook.
    8-15 just in from Rob, Just wanted to touch base. We have been doing well on the lower Deschutes with the Crandall patterns by Spirit River. This year with the drought conditions we face, White River a tributary to the lower Deschutes has been adding a lot of glacial melt. This colors the entire lower Deschutes River for about 50 miles. This is prime time for steelhead fishing in this section. With reduced visibility (often only 20”) traditional methods with dry lines are failing. To produce results for my clients on a daily basis we have switched to sink tip lines and the Crandall’s Wedding Dress in cerise and blue to get results. The jointed body of this pattern moves the fly a lot and the flash material draws in strikes from aggressive fish. Plainly said, we are catching fish when others are getting blanked!

    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.

    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.

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.

    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech (Purple and Red) - Product Image
    Click for larger image
    Two Toned Flash Moal Leech (Purple and Red)

    This flies has fished best with Red cone

    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.

    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) .
