Methow - This color scheme got its name when I first fished the Methow river, in the winter of 2015. I had two flies tied up in this color pattern and caught eight Steelhead in one day. Since then whenever the water has good visibility it is a go to pattern. I've caught huge Steelhead and good size Coho on this color pattern (Black/Blue/Chartreuse).

Neo Skagit Leech, Methow

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 Neo Methow 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.

Regular size has a hidden .25 inch bead, and is three inches long.

Fly is tied and glued in every step of it's construction - tied to last.

Size: 2.5, 3 inches| Size 2 Owner hook (want a bigger hook for big Steelhead and Salmon -

Egg Dropping Methow Rhea Taco, Mini

One of Grabflies best color patterns, the Methow (Black/King Fisher Blue/Chartreuse Butt). This Taco fly has the addition of the trailing egg.

Egg Dropping Fish Taco

One of Grabflies best color patterns, the Methow (Black/King Fisher Blue/Chartreuse Butt). This Taco fly has the addition of the trailing egg.

Jeff Hickman designed the Fish Taco Spey fly specifically for Steelhead and Salmon. When Jeff Hickman gets hungry he thinks of one of his favorite things to eat - fish tacos.

The Fish Taco was designed to be un-weighted and easy to cast with lots of movement.

Like Fish Tacos - a favorite dish for hungry fly fishermen, and every cook has their own recipe. Grabflies has its recipe and custom ties these Fish Tacos by hand in Washougal, Washington.

Grabflies likes to tie Fish Tacos that are spicy and hot, and full and juicy. These Fish Tacos are delicious offerings for Steelhead and Salmon.

Improved Summer Methow Moal - Product Image
Click for larger 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.
