Well those who have been on the board for a while know I'm a steelhead nut. The last 2 years have been a bit disappointing but hopefully things will turn around this year.

Here's a good thread (going strong for 2 years now) that will get the fall chrome juices flowing. Good for a steelhead beginner or the avid chromer.

The days are already growing a bit cooler and steel will be here before you know it. Feel free to look through this whole post to get some good ideas for steelhead flies.

I'm tying up some estaz for salmon and steel. I've never used them before. Easy peasy...

What's your favorite colors?

I'm headed out today to get some more supplies.

I like blue, chartreuse, pink, amber, orange and red for Estaz eggs. There is a debate on how much color really matters - but when it is slow changing flies at least lets you feel like you are doing something. We all have our theories, but I don't think anyone really knows why a steelhead will swipe at a fly.

Nobody says you can't swing Estaz eggs - that works too.

I've got yellow, peach, root beer, chartreuse, and red. I also bought some hot beads to tie up egg sucking leaches. Do you guys like a bugger or a zonker strip for your leaches?

Here's a massive refresh of a thread that's got a LOT of good info for steelhead flies (going 3 years strong now). Read through instead of it all getting repeated.

Ryguyfi,

I had luck with a white estaz and white crystal bugger last year. Caught my first erie brown on the crystal bugger.

The best producing flies for hook ups were bead head pheasant tail, and beadhead copper john.

This is my go to fly for steelhead, salmon and browns. It was killer for me last fall and this spring and I have total faith in it. I am actually tying some up tonight. I call it a regurgitated minnow.
