FLY FISHING

Fly anglers are offered several options - the ever popular "Chuck and Duck" method, which employs a thin diameter running line a weight and most often a tandem dropper fly rig. This rig is a very effective method for pursuing fish in larger rivers that typically hold on or near the bottom. We generally use 7-8 wt. rods for steelhead and 9-10 wt. rods for salmon. Both configurations are outfitted with high quality fly reels loaded with a thin running line.

Steelhead and Salmon techniques

Floating line/indicator nymphing:
This is a great method for smaller rivers where the fish are spooky and generally hold in less than 6 feet of water. This method is effective when sight fishing to fish holding in shallow water; allowing you the option of placing your fly right in front of a resting fish. Generally 8-9 wt rods are used for this technique. Reels are generally over-lined with a heavier weight floating line, tapered leader,indicator,shot and flies.

Spey fishing:
The most challenging method of all! Swing flies on long spey rods and tapered leaders, trying to tempt a fresh run steelhead to take your offering. This method is the most technical casting long cast's with several types of lines to cover the run completely. While the strikes are fewer, they are always memorable.
