The flies in this post are Proven Patterns I've used for years fly-fishing Vancouver Island. Alright, here it is folks, my claim to fame in the fly world! The most obvious pattern for me when I started tying flies for Steelhead was a pattern that cut through current to get to the depths needed to get Steelhead's attention. Also a pattern that I thought would look most like a shiny fry in our crystal clear water but was easy to pickup and cast with little resistance. Amongst those who know, the Slipstream is one of the most reliable patterns period on the west coast in clear water conditions for all pacific sportsfish in salt or freshwater! I've tied this pattern in various sizes on both tubes & originally on a Tiemco 7999 Salmon/Steelhead hook. Yes there is flashabou under the Gray marabou wing, the rest is self explanitory. Don't leave home without it!
Some great fishing pictures from past adventures on Vancouver Island. This fish was hooked on the Nitinat River after my friends offered up the pool to Me! "You go through first Ken" they said while I'm standing with them waiting for them to be rigged up! Always take good friends when heading out fishing:)
