Oregon’s John Day River Steelhead (Solving The Fall Puzzle)

Prince Nymph

Prince Nymph

This slowness tripped us up. Day one we were fishing what we considered prime steelhead water: Good current in a chute or drop-off. We swung traditional steelhead flies, tried leeches and even nymphed these likely spots for about 8 hours straight…

Day two we broke the code — switched to full-time nymphing in the slow, froggy, deep pools. Big wild steelhead stacked up in this slow moving water, and we worked each spot with nymph rigs and indicators. The hot fly of the trip was a size 12 prince nymph.

Fly Tying In The Round (For the visually needy….cool site!!)

I posted this way back and came across it again. Visuals are everything to me in the learning process. Click on each tier, pick a pattern, click it and wait for it to load and then use your cursor to rotate the fly for a view of the varied angles. This site should expand and use this style with a broad base of patterns (saltwater, salmon, steelhead, grayling etc.)   http://www.flytyingclips.com/MC_Tan.html
