Great Lakes Steelhead Flies
 
Great Lakes Steelhead on a fly 

Steelhead were initially introduced into the Great Lakes in 1876 in Michigan’s Au Sable River (tributary to Lake Huron). From this, and subsequent introductions, steelhead quickly colonized throughout the Great Lakes, establishing naturalized (wild) populations. By 1887, adult steelhead were returning to the Muskegon River to spawn, and were found in the Pere Marquette River by 1901.

Stu's Metal Head Tube, Blue - Product Image
Click for larger image

Stu's Metal Head Tube, Blue

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.

Stu's Griz Turbo Cone, Blue/Black - Product Image
Click for larger image

Stu's Griz Turbo Cone, Blue/Black

These new wide-profile cones create a turbo vortex at the front of a tube fly. The turbo cone gives the fly a unique swimming action. The action combined with the soft materials, which pulsate to mimic breathing, produces a fly that drives fish crazy. Whether fishing in the slowest or hardest of currents, the fly will move and pulsate like no other pattern. In addition to the unique movements, the turbo cone also provides a little bit of weight to help get the fly down. Our Turbo Cone Tube Flies are tied on a 1.25-inch tube with a 10mm turbo cone.

Comes with Size 2 trailing hook.

Improved Methow Moal - Product Image
Click for larger image

Improved 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.

    Skagit Leech, RMO, Black/Blue

    A custom design by Grabflies. Design idea came from combining the famous Skagit Minnow with the new Intruder style trailing hook. 

    Looking thru my website you will see many variations and evolution of this fly. This is my latest, 2-18-2021. This variation uses Ostrich in the rear of this fly like the Neo Skagit Ostrich Leech, Methow , before that is rabbit prop ball (flor. blue) to keep Ostrich from collapsing - giving fly more profile and movement. Then Holographic Flashabou, Marabou, Grizzly feathers, and then black cross cut rabbit collar, finished with Flashabou and barred Voodoo fibers.

    Like the Neo Skagit Leech, but tied with Rabbit, Marabou, and Ostrich.  Holographic Chartreuse Flashabou, four Chartreuse Grizzly feathers, Red .25 inch RedNickle Hot Bead.

     

    • Lots of movement in the fly - A great Steelhead Fly.
    • Hook Sizes: 1 Owner SSW hook
    • Hook Holder: Flor. Glow in the dark, Chartreuse Tubing 
    • Length: 3 inches 
    • Fly is tied and glued in every step of it's construction - tied to last.

    Copper Bead Head Carey Bugger

    The Carey is by far one of the most popular lake fishing patterns in British Columbia. It is an exceptional trolling fly, and a great searching pattern.

    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.

    Hoody's Hanger Blue

    With many years of intense searching for these anadromous business partners, I have found tying my skaters on a 60° hook has had the most success. The fly skates, pops and gurgles, making it hard for fish to resist. The Hanger is easy to cast and will pop well due to the tail end of the fly being weighed down by the hook. This keeps the legs down and the foam up for that iconic pop. Greatest of all are most of the fish hooked on the 60° jig hook are landed. Black and blue for those early morning dawn patrols and over cast days, orange for bright fish, and white for that 12 O’clock lunch fish when everyone’s taking a nap.

    When I was Twelve I read "The Trout Fisherman's Bible, by Ray Bergman" I practiced the full drift, long before indicators (which I don't use). What I'm getting at - fishing this fly. It is a nymph over half of the drift, and then when I mend and it swings it is a Bugger then.

In the rivers of the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest, nymphing is quickly becoming the go-to method for many anglers fishing for steelhead.
