    This Grande Ronde steelhead took a little skater of my own design. This was one of 3 I caught in about 15 minutes and a 10x10 little patch of water.

    size 6 hook.
    tail- purple calftail
    tag- green antron over holographic tinsel
    body- black spun deer hair with "wings" on the front.
    back- orange foam doubled over in front for stiffness. The foam is cut in a triangle so if you look at it from the bottom you wont see much orange.


    i was just messing around in the shop tying these one day but they were really effective, and the orange back really helped clients see the fly so it was more enjoyable for them to ba able to follow it on the swing.

    sweet man, reminds me of those quigley dragon gurglers jergens was talking about. I've seen a few flies with these type of proflies. I hadnt ad much faith before, but seeing is believing eh? wonder if they're imitating anything in specific or if they just see and destroy.


    ps-what shop you work in?

    its just an see and destroy reaction i think... although there are a lot of october caddis in the G.R. and i think those east side fish get very surface oriented at an early age so they are much more likely to take a skater.



    i worked in the NW Angler in Pouslbo and B.I. before it got sold.

    I have used those gurglers before but i wasnt a big fan of them. I dont think i had a single rise on one while on the G.R. this year. But i have much more confidence in my little skater, a steelhead caddis, or after-dinner mint so i just dont fish the others much.
