Fly of the Week


Hey Folks, here's a pattern which I designed many years ago that has been one of my favorites for small stream Steelhead fishing. This purple bead head nymph has caught more Steelhead than I can remember and plenty of fish when friends & clients have been using it too! The other day when I guided my client into that nice little wild steelhead, we used other little patterns that I thought would work but nothing happened. I'm always one for trying new stuff and approaches to fishing opportunities and I have to say this pattern proved itself once again after trying many other things over that fish you see posted on this blog recently... Simply put, steelhead love purple so next time you find yourself at a loss on a small steelhead river with gin clear water give it a go, you may be pleasantly surspised!

  1. I used to have dreams about this fly.. and the bullets it attracts. I remember back when we didn't have purple colored beads though ;)

    I'm sure I still have a few tied from the 90's in a box somewhere.

    nice looking tie
