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.

Fish Magnet Articulated Series - Product Image

Fish Magnet Articulated Series

As the name implies, these flies are jointed in the middle with the mono hook line running to the front of the fly and acting like as a joint between the front and back half. These are expensive and time consuming as I am literally tying two flies. 
They are weighted with a small bead mid ship to avoid bead grabs. Also aids in not getting stuck under a rock.
These have MAXIMUM movement and my new go to fly on coastal rivers in the winter. Easy to cast  with a Skagit setup. 1/2 Rhea tie.
  • Black/pink with pink flash - 5" long and maximum visibility in dark or dirty water.
  • Purple/Pink with pink flash rear and purple flash front- 5" long. great color for glacial stained rivers and dark or dirty water. My best producer lately on coastal rivers. Most recently a 21# hen and a 15# chrome hen.
  • Methow Blue/green-  4". A clear or cold water fly that is a huge producer on low, cold and clear water. Made smaller because a huge sillouette is not required on a clear river.
  • Black/Green with blue flash- 4". morning and evening fly on cold clear rivers or use with confidence all day or switch to the Methow in full light. Also effective when glacial rivers get clear.


Picture is a 39" 21# hen. I got a quick lift and snap picture on a river that allows it. Released quickly and unharmed after an epic 150 yard sustained run! Caught on a purple/pink. Grip n Mit used for easy grip to prevent struggling, dropping, or squeezing too hard. Made from no harm net material from Grabflies.

    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!

    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.

    The Muddler Minnow is one of the most popular fly patterns in the world.

    When swinging the Muddler the fly moves in and out of the surface film, enticing Steelhead to the strike.

    Muddlers are also fished subsurface with sinking tip lines. Muddlers because of their deer hair trap lots of shimmering bubbles of air that fish love.

    Fish Magnet Fall Flies

    Double shoulder Rhea.
    I started tying these for last year with a two shoulder section front and rear with a slim shiny or diamond braid middle. It is a LOT of Rhea with Front and rear fox shoulders that hold the Rhea and a little flash out like tentacles! 
    It proved AMAZING on fall steelhead, wild and hatchery. Then when fall Chinook came in with the steelhead it wrecked them too! 
    Very expensive Rhea and grizzly tentacle tie for max movement.

    Small hidden bead weight for ballast so they swim right. Non weighted same cost but specify weighted or non weighted.

    Size: 3- 3.5"
    • Purple/ Red 1/2  purple and 1/2 red perfect for bright days and Chinook in the system. My number one fly last fall for Steelhead and kings. 3-4" perfect for mid visibility.3/4 purple 1/4 red for darker water, darker days with same results!
    • Methow blue/green- clear water killer for Steelhead and Coho. If Chinook enter the system use purple / red. 1/2 and 1/2.
    My best fall steelhead on a half purple half red 4". About 17 lbs!

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)

    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.

    Morrish Trailer Trash, Night Shade

    The Trailer Trash by Ken Morrish is a large, Intruder-like pattern that makes no apologies. Like many, Ken admittedly was inspired by the design features of the Intruder to create a large profile fly that has great movement and little bulk. At nearly 4-5 inches, this large creature swims frequently in Steelhead rivers around the West, at risk of being eaten in a violent manner. Pacific Salmon and Sea-run Browns also like the way it tastes.

    A two stage Intruder with soft Marabout that swims.

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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
