Winter Steelhead Flies (Click Here) - Think big, large profile, lots of movement (a fly that will motivate a steelhead to move in cold water). Other than that summer steelhead flies can work in the winter, and winter steelhead flies can work in the summer. I use Moal leeches all year round with excellent results. An exception to the above would be for very clear low water in the winter, then think small bright and flashy.

Moal Leech - Product Image
Click for larger image

Moal Leech

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 tried and True Mother of all Leeches. The classic Strung Out MOAL (Mother of all Leeches) is the one thst started it all. Invented by Derek Fergus is is one heck of a pattern. These really are a pattern you need if you hunt Steelhead. Because we use a Octopus hook the short shank holds fish far better allowing more fish to hand. Because it is tied on a string (gel spun) the fly tends to wiggle and swim in the current. Specially swinging them.


Size 2 trailing hook - 2.5 - 3" long  (custom flies tied with bead heads)

Also see Summer Moal Leeches, 2 1/4 inches (Click Here)

 

 

The Moal Leech catches Steelhead in all conditions. Add it to your fly box. You will never look back.

"I wanted to thank you for your fast service and a great product.  I have
been fly fishing for over forty years and have caught hundreds of trout and
salmon and even a few bonefish but I had never caught a steelhead on a fly
before last weekend.  With my fifth cast of your black and purple MOAL into
a nice Clackamas riffle I hooked and landed a small hatchery summer hen.  I
attached a picture although it doesn't show the fly too well (my hands were
still shaking)." -

Moal Leech, Black with Pink Cone

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 Spirit River Fergus' Strung Out Moal Leech sized just for Salmon & Steelhead is the pattern that started the Strung-Out revolution. Tied entirely on a string, the Mother of All Leeches (MOAL Leech) is quite possibly the best leech pattern we have ever fished. Tons of movement, subtle flash, and short shank hook for a drastically increased landing ratio. Give it a shot, we know you'll soon feel the same.

The Hybrid

The Hybrid, A very serious Steelhead Fly (Solid colors good for Salmon too).

(NEW Design, Fall 2015)

I have designed similar Steelhead flies like this pattern. It is a refinement. The Hybrid also comes articulated (more movement) if you choose that option. Also this pattern comes with the new tip dyed Ostrich Plumes that really add movement, plus with the added Ostrich Spey Plumes tied in under the larger tip dyed plumes gives the fly more silhouette but without much water absorption so it is pretty easy to cast for a big fly. When the black dyed tips of the Ostrich move the fly appears more lively in the water.

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech - Product Image
Click for larger image

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech

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.

UV2 Calamari, Pink

A unique Squid/Shrimp pattern.

Size 4 hook

Spirit River continues to lead the way in UV2 technology. We have used a double dye process to give all our unique UV2 materials and flies the added UVF/UVR ultraviolet wave lengths. We all know UV Florescence which is so common on everything from street signs to bass lures. UV Reflectance is a spectrum of wave lengths humans can not perceive yet is extremely common in the animal and insect world. UVR allows mayflies to find mates, and bees to find flowers. Many male birds and bugs have a strong natural UVR signature.

Greg's Kriller, Blue

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!

Black Magic Muddler

Black Magic Muddler a custom tie by Grabflies.

A very good summer/fall Steelhead Muddler Minnow pattern. Design for rivers like the Klickitat and Deschutes... This muddler is tied on a shank with a trailing #2 Owner hook. Trailing hooks are much better for tail nipping takes and help  barbless hook stay hooked much better, plus do much less damage to wild fish for releasing.

Tied with a rabbit wing.

Fly is 1.5 to 2 inches longer. Fishes very high in the water column on a dryline. This muddler has lots of action.

Works great summer into fall for Steelhead.

HoBo Spey - custom tied by Grabflies using quality (best) materials:

A great time tested and proven Steelhead pattern. Black and blue is money for Steelhead. HoBo has lots of movement in soft water because of the Marabou. Grabflies ties this pattern with a dubbing ball before Intruder Prop hackle and then black Marabou. This stops the Marabou from collapsing flat, but instead gives the fly shape and movement.

Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse

Steel Plow, Black/Chartreuse

Hooking a steelhead on a skated fly is one of the most rewarding experiences in fly fishing.  As we sought out to develop a “top-shelf” steelhead skater we turned to an unlikely source for inspiration - blacksmith John Deere’s original walking steel plow.  Our #4 short-shanked hook acts as a rudder and helps keep the fly in the surface tension even during violent grabs, while the plow handles act as outriggers, giving the fly balance and the simulation of wings. The flash and hackles catch water and light to give indication of movement and life and an orange sighter helps you track this fly across the early morning slicks.

Larimer's Reverse Marabou, Chartreuse/Blue

With the Reverse Marabou Tube, Tom Larimer solves this problem by tying it backwards on the tube so the marabou fibers point forward, giving a bigger profile with a smaller amount of material.  The smaller amount of material helps it sink fast, and that sink rate is really important as we mentioned above.
  • Super simple, yet deadly effective
  • The marabou is tied in facing forward to give it extra bulk without the weight
  • Both winter and summer steelhead love to eat marabou
  • Tube fly with included hook

Hoody's Hanger Blue

With many years of intense searching for these anadromous business partners, I have found tying my skaters on a 60° hook has had the most success. The fly skates, pops and gurgles, making it hard for fish to resist. The Hanger is easy to cast and will pop well due to the tail end of the fly being weighed down by the hook. This keeps the legs down and the foam up for that iconic pop. Greatest of all are most of the fish hooked on the 60° jig hook are landed. Black and blue for those early morning dawn patrols and over cast days, orange for bright fish, and white for that 12 O’clock lunch fish when everyone’s taking a nap.

Hexagenia Nymph's are a favorite snack for steelhead no matter what time of year. 

Work Great For: Great lakes Steelhead, Tierra Del Fuego Browns, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout...

Swing them, dead drift them, retrieve them...

Hex nymphs are important to Michigan fly fishers because their distribution density is vast, the physical size is easy to see and calorie-rich, and the realistic swimming movement all contribute to its success. Steelhead anglers know this pattern to work extremely well fall through spring just as trout anglers know its importance come June when the nymphs get active just prior to the celebrated hex hatch.

BugTana

A Grablies original - a cross between a Bugger Leech and a Montana Nymph.

I like to swing flies - always have. Even when I trout fish, I would swing nymphs and or do a full swing with a mend when the fly was a cross from me.

When I was Twelve I read "The Trout Fisherman's Bible, by Ray Bergman" I practiced the full drift, long before indicators (which I don't use). What I'm getting at - fishing this fly. It is a nymph over half of the drift, and then when I mend and it swings it is a Bugger then.
 
This fly is good for Steelhead and large Trout. Great lakes Steelhead, and Browns, Pacific Northwest Steelhead, BC Steelhead, and Tierra del Fuego...

 Marabou tail, Ringneck Pheasant dyed Black Wing Case.
 
Tied on a AHREX NS110 Streamer Hook, Size 6 - very sharp, quality hook.

TDF Cone Bugger Rubber Legs, Size 4

Using nymphs for steelhead and sea run-brown trout in Tierra del Fuego can be a very effective technique. In the rivers of the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest, nymphing is quickly becoming the go-to method for many anglers fishing for steelhead. The hooks used for our nymphs are stout enough to hold the heaviest steelhead or the sea run browns of Tierra del Fuego.

Nymph it, or Swing it = works!
