Tube Flies for Summer Steelhead

Posted by flugfisk on September 1, 2014 in steelhead tube fly tying in the round

The tube flies presented in this slideshow were tied with Summer Steelhead in mind. They are based off of a fly that is used rather successfully by the owner of Lost Creek Fly Shop for Summer-run Steelhead. I added a Rabbit Fur tail, different types of hackle, Jungle Cock eyes and a cone head to modify the pattern a bit. I was lucky enough to land a hatchery hen on one of the purple variations of this pattern on my most recent outing.
