Hot Beads, Metallic Purple

Our Hot Beads (TM) feature our patented counter drilled hole and more importantly have a baked on enamel finish OVER A BASE COAT. These are not JUST painted like the competition's. That's why our Hot beads are truly are HOT!
Our machining is unsurpassed and the plating is fantastic. Spirit River is proud to be know as the leader in quality on all our brass products like these Hot Beads. Each cone is machined on a screw machine one at a time. All are then tumbled to remove many of the machining marks...then we plate them twice with a high quality base and finish coat. Our process takes longer & yes it will cost slightly more...but you should expect nothing but the best when you tie your own flies. Why not have the best when it's only a few cents more.

TDF BH Hot Bead , Size 8

Nymphing for steelhead and sea run browns is 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.

Neo Skagit Leech, King Salmon - Red/Orange/Black - Product Image
Click for larger image

Neo Skagit Leech, King Salmon - Red/Orange/Black

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. The original version was 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 - 3.25 inches | #1/0 SSW Owner hook

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

Muddler Moal Leech - Product Image
Click for larger image

Muddler Moal Leech

I've been tying different versions of this Muddler Moal Leech fly over the years. Now I'm happy with this new pattern. It has a hidden nickel bead to help sink it enough so it swims with movement, but can be swung over snaggy terrain.
 
Fly is 2 - 2.25 inches long (small for a moal leech - summer size). Tied on braid line with #2 SSW Owner hook. Tied with PVC hook holder with Flashabou for tail, Crosscut Rabbit Fur, Micro Barred Voodoo Fibers, Black Deer Belly Hair, Shank, and braid line.
 
Three color patterns - select below (Black/Olive - Olive is more Olive color than photo)
 
Good summer and fall Steelhead pattern (Steelhead love rabbit fur and muddlers). The silhouette with the large spun deer belly hair head gives it a sculpin minnow look.

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.

Egg Sucking Bullhead Leech

Egg Sucking Bullhead Leech custom fly tied and designed by Grabflies. Great for Steelhead. This version with the Bead Egg at the eye of the shank, sinks the fly faster than the Bullhead Leech.
NEW for 2020

This Muddler Style Deer Hair Head fly has lots of movement and silhouette. It is weighted with .25 inch Hot Bead. The weight is added so this fly will sink and offset the floating deer hair which traps air. The rabbit strip wing is propped up by the bulbous thorax hidden behind the wing - see thumbnail photo, upper left.
Head: Black and Red Spun Deer Hair
Length: 2.75 inches | 2.25 inches (two sizes)
Size: 1 Owner SSW Hook | 2 Owner SSW Hook (two sizes)
Tied on a eyed shank
Bead: .25 inch Hot Bead

Hot Head Woolly Bugger TB Black & Hot Orange - Product Image
Click for larger image

Hot Head Woolly Bugger TB Black & Hot Orange

Same as the Woolly Bugger but with an enticingly colored tungsten beadhead for added weight and attraction.
Swing it, strip it - WORKS. 
The hot head bead can act as an egg-sucking leech imitation if there are fish spawning somewhere in the watershed. In low water conditions of summer and early fall fish can be somewhat skittish. That’s where this fly excels, as it can be fished in any water flow and clarity!

Great Lakes Spider Leech - Product Image
Click for larger image

Great Lakes Spider Leech

The Spider Leech is a new name for the K Moal, with the addition of Micro Barred Voodoo Fibers and new colors. The name came from the spider leg (fly only has six legs, not eight) look when hanging from my drying rod when I tie them. See photo below.

This fly is a good Sculpin imitation.

This fly has a weighted bead but it is tied in the rear some - hidden. This effects how the fly swims/swings through the river. It has a flatter/level angle. Also the hidden 1/4 inch nickel bead gives the fly more silhouette - bigger shoulder. NEW for 2017 summer. Size: 2.5 inches.

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.

Custom Moal Leeches are tied by Grabflies.com in the good old USA. Moal's are tied using the best materials on the market and are tied to last (super glue, Berkley Fireline Braid 20 LB (double over for 40 LB strength) and, quality hooks.

Skagit Leech, RMO, Black/Blue

A custom design by Grabflies. Design idea came from combining the famous Skagit Minnow with the new Intruder style trailing hook. 

Looking thru my website you will see many variations and evolution of this fly. This is my latest, 2-18-2021. This variation uses Ostrich in the rear of this fly like the Neo Skagit Ostrich Leech, Methow , before that is rabbit prop ball (flor. blue) to keep Ostrich from collapsing - giving fly more profile and movement. Then Holographic Flashabou, Marabou, Grizzly feathers, and then black cross cut rabbit collar, finished with Flashabou and barred Voodoo fibers.

Like the Neo Skagit Leech, but tied with Rabbit, Marabou, and Ostrich.  Holographic Chartreuse Flashabou, four Chartreuse Grizzly feathers, Red .25 inch RedNickle Hot Bead.

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.
