Winter Steelhead Flies

for Washington, Oregon, Northern California, British Columbia, Great Lakes Steelhead


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. Large Intruder Flies get the job done.

Here is an article slideshow about Winter Steelhead fishing in the Pacific Northwest that Grabflies, Jeff Layton wrote: https://www.grabflies.com/pdf/WinterSteelhead.pdf

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech, Blue/Chartreuse - Product Image
Click for larger image

Two Toned Flash Moal Leech, Blue/Chartreuse

AKA: Improved Methow Moal

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.

Bantam, Green Butt

A little "Intruder" style fly, easy to cast, a nice little mid strata searching pattern. This is a caster's dream. It is sparse, light, and casts like a rocket. It has a TINY set of eyes on it that gives it just enough weight to get down a bit when desired but isn't a chore to cast.

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)

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)." -

Small Moal Leech with trailing eggs.

Great Flesh Flies for Alaska.

This flesh version of the moal leech is great early and late season. Try him on the swing, dead drift. The added attraction of the bead makes a big difference.

A great fly for any Alaska - fishing for rainbows, chinook, coho or sockeye. This fly is also a great coastal winter steelhead fly, particularly in small streams.

    The Spirit River Fergus' Strung Out Moal Leech sized just for Salmon & Steelhead is the pattern that started the Strung-Out revolution.

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.

    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!

    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

    BugTana - Product Image

    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.
