Mastery Spey Skagit Extreme Intermediate Heads

Visit with Garry Sandstrom at the Metalhead Christmas Party
Saturday, December 10

The popular Skagit Extreme Heads are now available in a unique Intermediate, slow sinking configuration. Conceptualized and tested extensively by Scientific Anglers Company rep, and anadromous fish wizard Garry Sandstrom, these heads provide some extreme tactical advantages over their floating counterparts, especially when the water is very warm or very cold. Since the whole head of the fly line rides below the fast skin of the river's surface, your line will fish deeper, and move much more slowly across the river, allowing your fly to stay in the strike zone of every fish much longer than when fishing with a floating head and a sinking tip of the same size. As the video above discloses, we were aware of this new line for many months before it became available to the public in August, 2011. They work, and under certain conditions will increase your hook-ups.
Be sure to check out our extensive  Shooting Line Selection.

Rhea Intruder Feathers

The following was taken from April Vokey's Fly Gal web site: "To peel rhea, pinch the strands at the tip of the feather and carefully pull down. The membrane should separate from the stem with all its fibers intact.  This gets  easier with practice, but is well worth a few casualties to be able to have such a remarkable hackle, free of the bulky stem. When tying the peeled rhea onto a shank, wrap the membrane as though it were the stem of a regular feather.” Some say the technique works even better if the feather is soaked in warm water prior to splitting. The first feather split easily dry following Aprils advice.

Rheas are large flightless birds that are native to South America. Many tiers liken the rhea feather fibers to small ostrich plume barbules. We think that Rea Intruder Feathers are much like giant chicken hackle. If your average barn yard rooster stood six feet tall he would have neck hackles that would be similar to these rhea feathers.
Silicone Legs
Hot Tipped Crazy Legs Daddy Long Legs Fly Enhancer Legs
Silicon legs are common on bass flies and bass lures. Lately silicone legs have found favor as replacement for hard to find natural materials used in tying large Intruder style steelhead flies. Smaller diameter silicone legs are now being used on some of the smallest trout flies.
Hot Tipped Crazy Legs
Adds movement, color, and dimension to any wet fly pattern. Use these fly tying legs for streamers, bass poppers, or bunny patterns for steelhead, salmon and saltwater. Better for large flies. Colors are translucent and vibrant. This material contains flecks of reflective glitter
