Neo Skagit Leech, King Salmon - White/Chartreuse

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 Skagit Leech is a version of the original Skagit Leech tied by Grabflies. It is tied with a hidden .25" nickle bead. The hidden bead helps prop up the Marabou which has stiff Prop Hackle in front of it. The fly swims different, and snags less as the bead will not snag on rocks. This design has heavy wire wrapped underneath a prop ball then wrapped over with diamond braid. See second photo.

Size:  3 - 3.5 inches | #1/0 SSW Owner hook

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

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.

Greg's Kriller, Red - Product Image

Greg's Kriller, Red

Greg's Kriller

Constructed on the banks of the Kanektok River the killer krill, or Kriller, was designed for maximum castabilty as well as its flaring motion when swinging across hydraulic “fences” in the water column. With the weight of the dumbbell eyes at the back of the shank, the Kriller swings deep with more of a downward-diagonal profile than most traditional patterns. A devouring size for both chrome Chinook and Steelhead, having the eyes closer to the hook attracts some of the most aggressive eats you can find near tidewater!

BigMoal MT Leech - Product Image

BigMoal MT Leech

BigMoal MT Leech - Mega Moal Leech with Marabou tail like a woolly bugger.

NEW - now with articulated tail

Tied with two different tail options:
  • Steelhead/Salmon/Sea-Run Brown Trout
  • Toothy Critters - Pike/Muskie

This hybrid Mega Moal Leech has become the new "go to" winter fly. Just like the Mega Moal this fly moves tough winter Steelhead. The BigMoal MT which is custom tied by Grabflies.com has caught Steelhead for Grabflies this winter after already fishing the run with a Mega Moal. The different accents and tail action seem to make that subtle difference.

This fly also has becomes popular for Pike, Muslie, and Sea-run Browns

The advantages of the BigMoal MT are:

  • Tail Wiggles and Fly Snakes through the water
  • TheBigMoal MT measures 6 - 6.5 inches long, but only 5 inches of rabbit fur, 1.5 inches of Marabou.
  • Trailing hook with the added Marabou tied directly on hook gets fouled less when making long Spey casts.
  • Fly is custom ordered and you can custom designed your fly to get that perfect color combination for your river.

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 because of the smaller offset trailer hook.

Big Mega Moal MT with Red Marabou Tail

King Predator Tube

•UV enhanced Snowrunner hair
•Custom 6mm bead for prop and keel weight
•blended fox, flash, & Snowrunner for throat
•reversed tied tab eyes sealed twice and locked in
•layered angel hair
•holographic flash
•Ahrex Bluewater 2/0 short shank (perfect for tubes!)

 (Three in Stock) 

Coming in at around 5 - 6" (give or take), this is one serious fly! For its size, it is very very castable on a Skagit rig for swinging up trophy Chinook, and super simple to cast single handed for Tarpon. The eyes are indestructible as well, and won’t come off from casting or hitting bottom. I swing this fly on my Chinook Spey rods, and also strip it with single hand rods for Pike & Musky. 

 Every June I head to the Skeena River in hopes of a 60lb Chinook. My box is limited to just these flies and the Snowrunner brush tubes.  I have been obsessed with Chinook since I was a kid watching boats troll for them on the Straits of Mackinac where I grew up, and I suppose I haven’t changed. Once I discovered swinging flies for Steelhead and Salmon, my obsession only grew to epic proportions! The hunt for the perfect King Salmon Fly!!!! (If there is such a thing!) Anyway, after much discussion with Jaap Kalkman from Smithers BC, I’ve tweaked his pattern slightly......for all intents and purpose it’s his design.

Chinook salmon spend their entire mature life feeding on baitfish, primarily pacific herring. These Snowrunner patterns are perfect and absolutely come to life in the water.....seriously, you have to see it with your own eyes! 

This is my go to pattern if I believe I have a chance at 40lb, 50lb, and even 60lb Chinook! (Think Skeena River, Kalum River, Kanektok, or South America)  The fish will absolutely slam these patterns, and I believe, for Chinook salmon,  they outperform intruders. I use an Ahrex Bluewater 2/0 short shank hook on these. They are perfect for large tubes and simply will not bend out. When going for these trophy fish I think it’s imperative to land them in a timely manner and you’ll need to put the heat to them! 

Conversely, these perform as awesome Tarpon patterns, and this style of Snowrunner pattern has caught some massive Tarpon when tested! The hair itself is as durable as it comes and really easy to cast. I leave the tube long so you can decide where to cut it and how you want to rig it. 

For King Salmon, I like to get the tube a little and run a ‘free swing junction’ connection. I think it holds fish the best, and really makes a difference where barbless hooks must be fished. 

The price point of these is extremely fair for what you are getting, and these flies will last you fish after fish! Try one out, I think you’ll be surprised.
