Traditional Summer Flies

The traditional summer steelhead flies were developed on the fabled rivers of the Pacific Northwest, such as the Umpqua, Deschutes, and the Rogue. Our traditional summer steelhead flies are tied on a black nickel, up-turned eye, salmon hook. Special orders can be tied on Gamakatsu, Daiichi, or Maruto hooks. Sizes available: 2 through 10, varying by pattern.

Jon's Motion Prawn

These Motion Prawns were designed by Jon Ingi Agustsson in 2002. The Motion Prawn was one of the first steelhead flies to use craft fur, which had been used for some time in saltwater flies. The MP incorporates a bead bedded behind the head, giving the fly a great balance or jigging action, depending on retrieve. The MP has gathered a small but loyal following over the past decade amongst steelheaders in the Northwest. Available in sizes 1/0 through 4.
