|Big Flies For Bull
Metolius River can provide a unique winter time fly fishing experience for Bull Trout. The Metolius River is open year round and has a great winter population of Bull Trout,
which will exceed twenty pounds. Bull trout eat other
fish. To catch them a large fly is needed. Try fishing 4"
to 8" streamers in some of the larger holes with a very fast
sinking line such as a Teeny T-200 or T-300.
The presentation is much like for winter steelhead; deep & slow.
This is my favorite Bull Trout fly. It is tied with matched peacock sward feathers for the back. White saddle hackles form the sides & flash is added for sparkle.

Deceiver, Blue & White
A decent herring pattern for Pacific Salmon and possibly the best fly for big jacks and barracuda in the Caribbean. This fly is also deadly on Bull Trout in both rivers and lakes.

|Epoxy Head Bait
Fish, Gray Back Minnow
This fly simulates all kinds of bait fish and is easier to cast than some of the larger Bull Trout patterns. You definitely need a few of these in your bag of tricks.

|Conehead Rabbit Strip
String Leech, Olive
This pattern has a very life like action and is most effective when you need to get deep.

Strip String Leech, White
Possibly the single most effective pattern for Bull Trout when they are holding is very deep water.

|Lamson Velocity Fly Reels|
The Velocity is a large arbor reel with a fully-sealed conical drag. It is a tremendous value in a fully machined, USA made reel. The Velocity has a less aggressive arbor ratio, deliberately uniform wall thickness, and a more planar structure than the Lamson Litespeed reel, but incorporates the same proven drag system. Velocity offers a superior reel in the under-$200-250 category. The VO-4 may be the most cost effective really good spey reel available.
