Winter Steelhead Flies

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. Large Intruder Flies get the job done.

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.

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 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.

Custom tied, made in the USA

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

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

Custom tied, made in the USA

Senyo's Artificial Intelligence, Blue/Black

The Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is a searching style attractor baitfish pattern. Due to its synthetic build, this fly pattern is extremely durable, lightweight, and provides a serious amount of movement while it swims. The A.I. holds a great profile, retains its shimmer and translucency, and is the perfect option to combat changing water conditions. A proven pattern across the Great Lakes Region to Canadian/Alaskan waters and the West Coast.

This fly has lots of movement for Steelhead.
