Simms WaderWick™ Fleece Simms Socks
Pants, Black Zip Top, Black
We've got tons of it in stock now !!! Get ready for fall Steelheading !!!

We used to think that all fleece under-garments were created equal. That is until a trip down the Missouri River in late October. My cheap fleece didn't get the job done, and I was shivering all day. That evening we stopped at the local fly shop to find another layer to put on. What they had was Simms WaderWick™ Fleece. I thought wow, 50-bucks, but bought a top. The next two days on the river were much more comfortable, even though the air and water temperatures never changed. We learned a valuable lesson about fleece. WaderWick™ Fleece is worth the extra money when the weather is cold. It wears well and looks good. There is no substitute.

Dead-drifting nymphs under a strike indicator is a very effective approach to catching steelhead. Nymphing is the most popular method of fly fishing for steelhead in many rivers in the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest. Nymphing works best where steelhead are congregated, such as below hatcheries. As a matter of fact nymphing is so effective that it has been banned from some rivers, such as the Umpqua because steelhead get worn out from being caught and released too many times.

Agent Onyx
Many stone fly nymphs come in brown and back. That’s an easy addition to great recipes, and still it follows the natural bug colors fish see. Possibly with the addition of the fluorescent orange bead, this fly could be called an egg sucking stonefly. Of course there is no such thing in nature, but the steelhead don't care. They eat this fly.

Agent Orange
Todd Ostenson is a steelhead guide and shop owner from Medford, Oregon. He says, "This fly follows the natural tying evolution of my love for heavy stonefly patterns. The first heavy stones I tied were “Montana Stones”, then came more natural golden stones, and etc. Then came beads in the early nineties to my patterns, and the addition of rubber legs via the girdle bug. One small detail to my girdle bugs, during my years guiding the Deschutes, was the bright orange thread head. I wouldn’t tie one with out this. Of course, for trout the
black thread head was fine; BUT, for

steelhead the bright orange thread head just seemed to get those extra few steelhead every week that add up over the course of a season."

Copper Swan, Red

The wing of a prince nymph, the abdomen of a Copper John. A more durable synthetic thorax, instead of peacock. White wings = Swan. Swan rhymes with John.

No awards for originality here. Just a unique design blended from the optimum ingredients of two best selling flies, on a hook to hold anything transitioning from salt water.

Dragg'N Fly
Heavier than the Agent. Higher ‘Velcro” factor, and tied on a bent hook to keep the hook point up. What ever your favorite deep presentation is, dead drift - low and slow - tight line - sink tip - center pin - and etc. This fly will drag the low reaches of your favorite steelhead hideouts. Equally effective for winter run steelhead too.

Oct'phat Ass
A heavily weighted October Caddis pupa pattern commonly used for both trout and steelhead. October Caddis usually crawl out on mid-stream boulders or stream side vegetation to hatch. However a long drift period can happen before they crawl out of the water. Emergence usually happens strongest during low light conditions. From the second week of September, to the middle of October, this caddis pattern will get you more steelhead hook-ups on your home river. If you don’t mind casting this heavy fly, it fishes superb on the swing too.

Lingerie Egg Pink
Chartreuse accents make many good patterns a little better. Like the skunk for example. A smidgen of this color just seems to get the exchange with the fish started more regularly. As for the yarn collar, it should not hide the fly. Veils are for weddings. A wispy, sexy, thin, see-thru yarn collar makes the Lingerie Egg irresistible to all species that crave the orange protein diet.

Tung. B.H Princess
The standard Prince Nymph is a great trout fly that works for steelhead too. This fly has more expensive hair, and more jewelry than the Prince. Hence, the Princess. A bit less tame, a lot more game. The results are no fairytale.

Sept'ober Midnight Fire
Todd Ostenson says, "This fly has very few materials. I was told politely , up front, by Solitude Fly Co. representative Eric Neufeld that this fly is just too simple to make the Solitude line up. I strung one on his rod for a evening fishing session during a store visit. After hooking seven steelhead on the Sept’Ober Soft Hackle in one evening, Eric informed me that this fly could be sold effectively by Solitude Fly Co."

Chewy Egg Sherbet
Hairy, and furry like the Star Wars character, chewy like a piece of soft steelhead egg candy. Steelhead, Trout and Dollies with teeth BEWARE. Chewey’s Velcro properties will hang this fly in your mouth longer than a northern sunset. Weighted on top the keep the fly deep, with out the point rubbing rocks. “Bird Beak” hook point has excellent holding power when barbless.

Speydicator Spey Line
Text by. Mark Bachmann Photos by: brad Shiley

A 7-weight Speydicator line easily casts a large Thingamabobber strike indicator. Agitator flies are productive for early summer steelhead when dead drifted under a strike indicator.
A large size Thingamabobber easily suspends an Agitator fly and three AAA split-shots.
A large size Thingamabobber easily suspends an Agitator fly and three AAA split-shots. My Speydicator line rig is fished with a Sage 7136-4 Z-AXIS rod, which has proven to be an excellent choice for nymph fishing for steelhead.
The Speydicator was designed to throw an unreasonable amount of weight at the end of an unreasonable length of tippet with an unreasonably large indicator. With the help of steelhead junkies (who would rather remain unnamed) the Airflo Speydicator floating line has evolved into a tool any serious steelhead nymph angler cannot live without. The lines come in four sizes starting at a WF6. They all have a short 21 to 23 foot head with a long 12 to 15 foot rear taper. Behind the rear taper is a 25 to 30 foot heavy level mending zone. The combination of the rear taper and mending zone allows the fisherman to reposition the head after casting and still have enough mass to stack mend line for 60 feet or more. After the mending zone the line is made with Airflo's unique low stretch ridged running line, helping you to stick fish even at the end of the longest drifts.

Thingamabobber Strike Indicators
These indicators are soft and squishy, but very durable. They are easy to see, are extremely sensitive, float higher than cork or yarn and are easier to cast. Its design was inspired by western guides who use small balloons as strike indicators for their buoyancy and sensitivity. All sizes will appeal to trout anglers. the large size is perfect for steelhead fishing.
