Flash Fish Taco

Same Profile as the Fish Taco but tied with more Flashabou.

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.

Since these Tacos are custom tied, Grabflies offers them in many different flavors and tie ups. You can get them in almost every color, and if you want to fish them deeper you can add Hot Cones.

Jeff Hickman likes to fish Purple Tacos in the morning, bright colors during the day, and black in the evening/dark.

    Lady Caroline, Olive/Gray

    The traditional summer steelhead flies were developed on the fabled rivers of the Pacific Northwest, such as the Umpqua, Deschutes, and the Rogue. Our traditional summer steelhead flies are tied on a black nickel, up-turned eye, salmon hook. Special orders can be tied on Gamakatsu, Daiichi, or Maruto hooks.

    A very nice tie.

    A great Steelhead Pattern for Summer and Fall.

    Size: 6

    The Lady Caroline | first mentioned in George Kelson's "The Salmon Fly", 1895 |

    The Classic Lady Caroline Fly is arguably one of the most recognizable Spey patterns; however unlike traditional Speys, the Lady C is tied with a tail. Tied by (most likely) Geordie Shanks, who was head ghillie at the Gordon Castle (as mentioned in A. E. Knox's Autumns on the Spey). The fly was named after Caroline Elizabeth Gordon Lennox (1844-1934) who was daughter of the Duke of Richmond and Gordon at Gordon Castle.
