Olympic Peninsula Steelhead Flies, 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.

PNW Munker Fly, Black/Pink/Blue - Product Image

PNW Munker Fly, Black/Pink/Blue

PNW Munker Fly

The first fly I was commissioned to tie was for a guide on the Great Lakes. He wanted a rabbit wing with a muddler head on a tube! I was
nervous and new, and he was patient and kind. I immediately went to the internet looking for this type of fly I could simply copy, but didn’t find much. I eventually pieced together a couple ideas, and through my friends critiques, we ‘re-designed’ a pattern. The idea comes from Kim Sorenson’s Munker pattern. A killer Danish Atlantic Salmon and Seatrout fly. The muddler head style is a Davie Mcphail design, and I’ve yet to find a better way to tie a muddler head on a tube! This particular fly accounted for my first ever fish on my own tied fly, and my friends personal best steelhead on his home river! I couldn’t recommend the pattern enough, and I know you’ll be more than satisfied with the results!
• 3 inches long
• Premium rabbit hide, hand cut
• 6mm brass bead for weight and wing support
• Angel hair and flashiboo
• Lady amherst pheasant
• Ahrex #2 homerun tube hook
 
Size: 3 inches, easy to cast for a rabbit wing this long, Lots of Movement!

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.

SNOWRUNNER BRUSH TUBE, Pink and Blue Collar

SNOWRUNNER BRUSH TUBE
 
(Two in Stock) 
o HIGH QUALITY SNOWRUNNER HAIR ON BRUSH
o LOADED WITH ANGEL HAIR AND HOLOGRAPHIC FLASHABOU
o FISH HUNTER SPEY MARABOU
o PREIUM 6MM BEAD FOR SUPPORT
o HIGH QUALITY CONES FROM EUROPE
o opst swing hook size 1/0 for Kings
o opst swing hook size 1 for Steelhead, Select hook below
 
These patterns just breathe life! You have to put them in the water to see. Snowrunner hair
comes from a fairly uncommon domesticated animal in Europe. The hair is as durable as it gets
and it just pumps like hell in the water! It doesn't mat or tangle on the hook like synthetics and
icelandic sheep, and is semi-translucent giving it a beautiful sheen. When I first tested the pattern
on the Kitimat river in BC, I caught a chrome bright Chinook on my first cast! Yes, i was at the right
place at the right time, and a little dumb luck too, but I fished this pattern for a week straight and
beat the crap out of it! It is still in my box ready to go!
Anyway, if a large pattern that holds profile in the heaviest of currents, yet moves
beautifully in even the slower pools, is what you are after, I highly recommend you give these a
shot!
Size: 4 inches
- Large fly that is easy to cast.

MAKE IT RAINBOW - Product Image

MAKE IT RAINBOW

Plenty of rivers have multiple species of both anadromous and resident fish at the same time.   This makes for some amazing fishing, but also presents the issue of what pattern is the best pattern to use that has the greatest chance of a grab across all species. RIO's Make It Rainbow is that fly. This fly is a virtual steelhead magnet, while also grabbing the attention of large brown trout and rainbow trout at the same time. Got bull trout in the stream?   Try the white, which we promise they can’t resist.
