Olympic Peninsula, OP Steelhead Flies

Olympic Peninsula Steelhead flies, Hoh River Winter Steelhead


Winter Steelhead fishing and flies for the Olympic Peninsula rivers for Steelhead.

West Side Rivers (North to South): Sol Duc, Calawah, Bogachiel, Hoh, Clearwater, Queets, Upper Quinault, Lower Quinault, Humptulips, Wynoochee Rivers.

Notes on fly colors and sizes that have worked for Grabflies over the years.

For off color water conditions - rivers like (Not during lower water conditions) Bogachiel, Hoh, Queets, and after large rains. I like to use Black/Pink, Black/Purple/Pink, Purple/Pink...and larger size flies 3-4 inches. In clearer water, go smaller 2.5 - 3 inches.

For Clearer water conditions and also late winter. I like to use Black/Blue, Black/Blue/Chartreuse, Blue... Size 2.5 - 3, Sometimes larger in more turbid water conditions.

Great fly for winter Steelhead, BC Steelhead, King Salmon, Chum Salmon - option to select Owner #1 hook

This Neo Skagit Leech is a smaller version of the original Skagit Leech. It is tied with  a hidden .25" nickle bead. The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou which has stiff Guinea and Prop Hackle in front of it. The fly swims different, and snags less as the bead will not snag on rocks.

Hook size: # 2 Owner | #1 OPST. (Select below)

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

Pink Flash Moal Leech with Colored Tail

Offspring to the Pink Flash Moal , but with 1/3 of the body a second colored tail.

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!

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.
