Fly of the Week.

With July not so far away, we will soon be Skating large flies for Steelhead. Over the years we've used all sorts of flies for this style of fishing. Everything from Steelhead Bees to Muddler Minnows. In recent years we've played with different patterns on plastic tubes and have come up with some pretty successful patterns. The ones in this picture are my latest design. Combining a simple pattern on a modified tube has created a skater that I'm certain is the most reliable fly for getting the job done on top in big water! This pattern is hard to sink and skates on the surface so nice that I think it will be the choice patterns for many moons to come. For more info on our skater tubes that makes many different flies skate spectacularly, contact us at flyguide@telus.net

Now is a great time to go fly-fishing on Vancouver island for some great trout action. It is also a great time for learning to fly-fish. Combined, the 2 activities work great together with lot’s of action for beginners getting involved with the sport. If interested in learning the sport of flyfishing call us anytime for we have a promotion going on in June for lessons on fly-casting & fly-fishing in our area for all its great fisheries!
