Lady GaGa Intruder, Blue and White
Using the scientific approach late one night at the tying bench, keen tournament caster and steelhead guide Travis Johnson was imbibing copious amounts of fine Scotch, when he sneezed into a pile of loose marabou and the Lady GaGa Series was born...divine intervention or blind luck? Any steelhead guide can use the help of both.
While guiding steelhead trips on many different rivers of the Pacific Northwest, Travis has developed some definite ideas about how steelhead see. The blue & white Lady GaGa has proven to be very effective in clear, cold water conditions.

Lady GaGa Intruder, Purple and Pink
This is the high water version of the Lady GaGa, incorporating both fluorescent pink and copper flash into the mix of materials. Travis has noticed that copper flash is productive, especially when the water is off-color. Lady GaGa flies are tied on Pro FlexiTubes. Lady GaGa flies come with #4 Octopus hooks. Many hooks fit these flies. Travis prefers to use Gamakatsu Drop Shot Hooks in size-1 as a trailer hook.  Another popular hook is the Daiichi X452 in size-2. This style of hook is pulled up inside the built in hook-holder.

EP Anadromous Brush


Don’t be deceived by the name. The EP Anadromus Brush not only makes fantastic Salmon and Steelhead flies but also will create outstanding saltwater flies in larger sizes. Just to give you an idea, if you would like to tie a classic Sea Ducer you can palmer it with this brush instead of using hackle. And you can tie flies large enough to attract sharks, barracudas, pike and muskies. Salmon and steelhead love this stuff. You will see the difference. 6 Brushes per pack. 10” long
