Click for larger image

Stu's Metal Head Tube, Orange/Fuschia

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.

Comes with hook.

ev·o·lu·tion
noun
noun: evolution; plural noun: evolutions
1.
the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
synonyms:Darwinism, natural selection
"his interest in evolution"
  • the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
    "the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution"
  • I designed EVO so it can be fished with either a Skagit or Scandi line. I use a lot of the same proven color patterns that I know work but every fly pattern has it own silhouette, movement, sinkability rate, and castability.

    EVO Mini is 2 inches long. Easy to cast. A good summer and fall Steelhead fly.

    Improved Summer Methow Moal - Product Image

    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.

    A "must-have" in the fly box if you aim for steelhead in B.C. Canada. The original version of the

    John Rohmer in Arizona (Colour; Canadian Brown)

    This a 45 millimeter fly (from front to end of tail) The body is 27 millimeters long – So equivalent of

    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.

    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.

    Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse

    Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse by Rio

    Hooking a steelhead on a skated fly is one of the most rewarding experiences in fly fishing.  As we sought out to develop a “top-shelf” steelhead skater we turned to an unlikely source for inspiration - blacksmith John Deere’s original walking steel plow.  Our #4 short-shanked hook acts as a rudder and helps keep the fly in the surface tension even during violent grabs, while the plow handles act as outriggers, giving the fly balance and the simulation of wings. The flash and hackles catch water and light to give indication of movement and life and an orange sighter helps you track this fly across the early morning slicks.
