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.

Hoody's Hanger Blue - Product Image

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...

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.
