Rhea Summer/Fall and Clear Water Spey

Tied like a Fish Taco Fly but using Rhea instead of Ostrich Plume. This gives the fly a little less silhouette, but with the same action, plus Rhea really stands out and moves in the water.

Unweighted and easy to cast, and has more movement because of the Rhea.

Muddler Moal Leech

I've been tying different versions of this Muddler Moal Leech fly over the years. Now I'm happy with this new pattern. It has a hidden nickel bead to help sink it enough so it swims with movement, but can be swung over snaggy terrain.
 
Fly is 2 - 2.25 inches long (small for a moal leech - summer size). Tied on braid line with #2 SSW Owner hook. Tied with PVC hook holder with Flashabou for tail, Crosscut Rabbit Fur, Micro Barred Voodoo Fibers, Black Deer Belly Hair, Shank, and braid line.
 
Three color patterns - select below (Black/Olive - Olive is more Olive color than photo)
 
Good summer and fall Steelhead pattern (Steelhead love rabbit fur and muddlers). The silhouette with the large spun deer belly hair head gives it a sculpin minnow look.

Neo Skagit Leech, White/Pink

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.

  • Bright Middle Day Conditions
  • Flesh Fly Imitation
  • Steelhead
  • Bull Trout - Dolly Varden
  • All Seasons

Size: 2.5 - 3 inches| Size 1 Owner hook

Swing this fly, Still water/lake fish this fly. It works. An attractor variation of the Carey Special.

Tied with Marabou Tail, and Pheasant Collar. 

The Carey Special traces its roots back to 1920 when Colonel Tom Carey and Dr. Lloyd Day collaborated on a pattern originally called the Monkey Faced Louise or Dredge. Their design featured a dense pheasant rump hackle and a dubbed fur body from a dead marmot Dr. Day had found on his drive to rendezvous with Colonel Carey for a fishing trip. Since this initial prototype, the Carey Special has undergone many mutations. Still, the fly’s core remains the same: a pheasant rump tail and hackle, coupled with a body using a variety of materials.
