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.

 


A-Z List of all Flies (Click Here)

 
 
 
 

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.

Stu's Ostrich Intruders, Metal Detector

Using long flowing materials is one of the key Intruder features. The rhea is a small South American ostrich-like bird with long flowing feathers, and it's the perfect match for the Intruder. The use of rhea was popularized by Paul Miller a number of years ago.

Stu's Rhea Intruders are tied on 40mm shanks with 5/32-inch brass eyes. Stock flies come with a Gamakatsu Octopus hook.

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.

Neo Skagit Leech, Red/Pink

A custom design by Grabflies. Design idea came from combining the famous Skagit Minnow with the new Intruder style trailing hook. This fly has lots of action in the water with a large profile.

This Neo Skagit Leech is a smaller version of the original Skagit Leech. It is tied with a hidden .25" nickle bead. The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou which has stiff Guinea and Prop Hackle in front of it. The fly swims different, and snags less as the bead will not snag on rocks.

This color pattern is very good for early winter Steelhead, Kalum River Winter Steelhead, and coastal Steelhead, and any where that pink does well.

Size: 3 inches| Size 2 Owner hook (Now available with #1 OPST hook)

Fly is tied and glued in every step of it's construction - tied to last.

    Sili-Leg Intruders, Pink/Black

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Luke's Chromewrecker - Pink/Purple

    The Chromewrecker was originally developed by Lucas Meeker as a large-profile, un-weighted pattern for targeting big water Steelhead in the lower flows of late summer and fall. Fishing big flies un-weighted with a heavier sink tip allows the fly to keep the large profile of a big weighted winter fly, but stay up in the column to snag less in broader and more consistent gradient runs. Many big steelhead flies sink slowly, especially un-weighted, but the Chromewrecker is tied with sparse materials that don't slow the sinkrate.

    As the pattern evolved over three years, Luke added weighted variants and colorways targeting winter Steelhead and Chinook. Another central idea in this pattern is to use multiple shades of colors and contrasting points to build blended colors and markings that more closely resemble how colors blend and fade in nature (even when the color is bright!)... like the blended markings on the flank of a bright chrome Steelhead.

    Improved Summer Methow Moal

    AKA: Two Toned Flash Moal Leech, Blue/Chartreuse

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Quigley's Dragon Gurgler Hot Pink

    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.
