  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.

Steelhead Squid Series Fly - Product Image

Steelhead Squid Series Fly

Steelhead Squid Series

Marine Biologist at Oregon's Marine Science Center, believe that steelhead may retain the "search image" of nourishing marine organisms even after they have returned to fresh water. According to Dr. W.G. Pearcy, steelhead range far out to sea, dining mostly on squid, amphipods and euphausiids. Squid make up 90% of their high seas diet.

Steelhead eat squid up to 6 inches in length.

In developing this Steelhead Squid Series. I looked at the Squid and Intruder style patterns and came up with this fly series. It has large eyes (Living Eyes are glued on with Epoxy to 3 mm Monofilm strips) in the rear just like a squid. It has lots of swimming leg and body movement.

There are three tie ups to choose from:
1. Rubber leg "Crazy Legs" (very durable and good in faster water)
2. Ostrich for the legs (better movement if softer water)
3. Ostrich and Jungle Cock Nails for the eyes (more natural, organic)

All tie ups catch steelhead, and color patterns.

Flies are 3/34" to 4" long, with size 2 trailing hook

Squid
Squid: phosfluorescent colors

 

(15 lb Winter Steelhead)

The Hybrid - Product Image

The Hybrid

The Hybrid, A very serious Steelhead Fly (Solid colors good for Salmon too).

(NEW Design, Fall 2015)

I have designed similar Steelhead flies like this pattern. It is a refinement. The Hybrid also comes articulated (more movement) if you choose that option. Also this pattern comes with the new tip dyed Ostrich Plumes that really add movement, plus with the added Ostrich Spey Plumes tied in under the larger tip dyed plumes gives the fly more silhouette but without much water absorption so it is pretty easy to cast for a big fly. When the black dyed tips of the Ostrich move the fly appears more lively in the water.

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Product Image
Click for larger image

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech

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.

UV2 Calamari, Pink

A unique Squid/Shrimp pattern.

Size 4 hook

Spirit River continues to lead the way in UV2 technology. We have used a double dye process to give all our unique UV2 materials and flies the added UVF/UVR ultraviolet wave lengths. We all know UV Florescence which is so common on everything from street signs to bass lures. UV Reflectance is a spectrum of wave lengths humans can not perceive yet is extremely common in the animal and insect world. UVR allows mayflies to find mates, and bees to find flowers. Many male birds and bugs have a strong natural UVR signature.

UV2 Versi Tube

Tube flies that stack.UV2 Versi Tube by Spirit River

Holy Wow...these we a multi staff brainstorm we had and this pattern series has already proven itself. It is a tube fly that is designed to be stacked. Years ago another fly company had this idea....perhaps it was Solitude or Idlewild. But they kinda sucked. Poor execution id say. Just a wad of marabou and a touch of flash. We have added better components, better color combos, .and made them UV2. The color combos are exactly what any avid steelhead fisherman needs.

Two colors: Blue, Purple

Comes with Hook

Use Purple and Pink if Black and Purple aren't producing. The VooDoo Leech is articulated so it is able to be long and bulky, but will swim in a lifelike manner, and the hook will stay firmly planted in the jaw of your fish.

K-Moal is a light version of the Kahuna Leech

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.

Greg's Kriller, Blue - Product Image

Greg's Kriller, Blue

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!
