The best flies for steelhead are…

…the ones you have the most confidence in.

Here’s a batch of such steelhead flies, along with a few new ones to place into the rotation. I love the ritual of fly box replenishment. So much potential glory stuck into wine corks.

All that’s needed now are some waiting and willing mouths.

    OMG I thought that they were Christmas tree decorations lol.

    Obviously I have never gone steelhead fishing.

      Not a bad thought.

      You’ll be pleased to know that I use a good number of natural colors (Copper BHSHPTs) and traditional soft hackles (Snipe and Purple) as well. The Black Crawlers to the far right have those fire orange hot spots, but other than that, they’re basic black.
