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.

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 - Product Image

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

Hareball, Purple and Pink

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.

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!

Bucket Buster - Product Image
Click for larger image

Bucket Buster

This is a specialized fly. Design to sink deeper into buckets of deeper water in holding areas in rivers. This fly is doubled weighted. It is tied with a hidden .25" nickle bead . The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou with Intruder Prop hackle followed by Marabou. The second weight element is the Intruder eye (Real Eyes Plus) - medium size. The fly has lots of material - full silhouette which helps move Steelhead. If you can meet the Steelhead half way in depth in the bucket you have a good chance at moving them to a grab. Other option is to put on a heavy tip, but once you move away from the bucket into more normal swing water you will want to change the tip, or change the fly.

Other goodies tied into this fly Chartreuse Lady Amherst Center tail , and Grizzly Saddle Hackle for it's wing.

Size: 3 - 3.5 inches | Heavily weighted

Hook: Size 2, Owner

Neo Skagit Skeena Leech - Product Image

Neo Skagit Skeena Leech

This pattern is like the very successful Neo Skagit and Skagit Leech but tied especially for the Skeena River, BC. The fly is tied with strong Mono hook holder instead of wire or braid making it easier to change hooks. Also the hidden bead is lighter so you can swing this fly to the bank into one foot of water, which you usually do on the Skeena.

Size: 3 inches- full profile

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 Skagit Leech is a smaller version of the original Methow Skagit Leech, which has more black in it. It is tied with a hidden nickle bead - smaller sizes lighter cone. The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou. The fly swims different, and snags less as the bead will not snag on rocks.

Black Magic Muddler

Black Magic Muddler by Grabflies.

A very good summer/fall Steelhead Muddler Minnow pattern. Design for rivers like the Klickitat and Deschutes. This muddler is tied on a shank with a trailing #2 Owner hook. Trailing hooks are much better for tail nipping takes and when barbless stay hooked much better, plus do much less damage to wild fish for releasing.

Fly is 1.5 to 2 inches longer. Fishes very high in the water column on a dryline. This muddler has lots of action.

HoBo Spey

HoBo Spey - custom tied by Grabflies using quality (best) materials:

A great time tested and proven Steelhead pattern. Black and blue is money for Steelhead. HoBo has lots of movement in soft water because of the Marabou. Grabflies ties this pattern with a dubbing ball before Intruder Prop hackle and then black Marabou. This stops the Marabou from collapsing flat, but instead gives the fly shape and movement.
