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.

Sili-Leg Intruders, Pink/Black - Product Image
Click for larger image

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. 

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.

    Stu's Ostrich Intruders, Fuchsia/White

    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 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!

    Sculpin Steelhead Truder - Product Image
    Click for larger image

    Sculpin Steelhead Truder

    Sculpin Steelhead Truder is a K-Moal with rubber legs added, plus Guinea hackle collar. This fly has a hidden bead like 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.

    This Neo Skagit Leech is tied with a hidden .25" nickle bead. The hidden bead helps prop up the Rhea. The fly swims different, and snags less as the bead will not snag on rocks.

    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 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!

    Nymphing for steelhead and sea run browns is a very effective technique. 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.

    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.

    Stu's Metal Head Tube, Olive/Orange

    Stu Foxall's latest creation is a tube fly utilizing the Pro Sportfisher Ultra Sonic Cones. These cones are made of brass and are slotted. 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.

    Very nice tie up. Make sure you take a long some of these on your next Steelhead fishing trip.

    Klickitat Summer Chartreuse Peekaboo - Product Image

    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.

    Fishmagnet Winter Staple - Product Image

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Size: 2.5 - 3 inches

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