Jerry French Signature Flies

Jerry French is well recognized amongst the steelhead spey community. When speaking of Skagit-style casting systems and tying of intruder type flies, Jerry and his friends Ed Ward and Scott Howell are at the forefront of modern Northwest fly fishing for steelhead. These flies are engineered to fish. Utilizing Jerry's innovative techniques of composite loops and modern materials, we have tied a fly that the master himself will fish.

Jerry's Intruder

The birth of the Intruder was in the Pacific Northwest. It has gone through many evolutions and surely it will continue to evolve, but Jerry's Intruder as it is tied today is a fish catcher. Tied using composite loops, UV materials and a Gamakatsu trailer hook, confidence is high when using this fly. Jerry's Intruder is approximately 3" long. Single Station Intruder is about 2" in length.

Dirty Hoh

The Dirty Hoh is a cross between an Intruder and a String Leech. It has a rabbit strip to get leech-like movements and a shoulder in the front tied like an Intruder to give the fly a large profile. Two sizes: Steelhead size is 3.5" and Chinook size is 4".

Summer Sculpin

Just like Jerry's steelhead flies, his trout flies utilize tying techniques to build a durable fly and a fly that has a profile that will not collapse in heavy water. This Summer Sculpin has an overall length of 3.5". Meat-eating trout are going to attack this fly.
