    Temple Fork Deer Creek Switch Rods

    11' #4 11' #5 11' #6 11' #7 11' #8 11' #9
    Temple fork Switch Rods Designed by: Bob Meiser and Mike Kinney...
    Two handed rod designers Mike Kinney and Bob Meiser continue to expand the TFO Deer Creek series of fly rods with the introduction of the Deer Creek Switch Rod Series. Bob Meiser has been in the forefront of popularizing and refining blank designs for the Switch Rod concept of fly rods since the mid 1990s. His expertise with this unique family of rods is well established within the two handed rod community. Bob’s original concept has been universally accepted over the past decade and teaming with Mike Kinney in design and application for these rods has now taken the concept to the next higher level. We have used our proprietary Axiom material lay-up process for these blanks. These are extremely light weight, durable, thoughtfully designed fly rods with superb performance … Best defined simply as: “Totally efficient delivery tools.”

    Airflo Skagit Switch Floating Heads

    The need had become blatantly obvious--a shorter head to match the now extremely popular Switch rods, and shorter Spey rods. But the "right" line to match these versatile tools had been unavailable, until now. The new Skagit Switch line hits the mark dead on. Shorter in length than the Airflo Skagit Compact, this new addition to the Skagit group of lines vary from 18' to 20' with 7 sizes ranging from 360 to 540 grains. Designed to load fast action switch rods in tight casting situations, move 10' to 12' of sink tip, and reach out to hit the "zone". Looped at both ends for ease of use, the front loop has the line size clearly marked for easy identification. The Mint Green color keeps the line visible and controllable at any distance. Couple this with your favorite Shooting Line and you have the pinnacle of switch casting setups. Line come packaged with Airflo Line Pouch that clips into the Airflo Head Wallet. Mint Green color.

    Agitator Series Flies for Anadromous Fish

    Agitator Black  Agitator Purple Agitator Pink
    Agitators get noticed by steelhead. In Oregon, we have steelhead in many rivers year round. Most return during the coldest months of December, January, February, March and April. Average water temperatures are 36 - 46 degrees. At these temperatures, steelhead will bite, but won't move far for a fly. To make matters more challenging the rivers are often very high and sometimes off color. The Agitator Series has evolved from the late 1960's to cope with tough winter & spring conditions. Through the years Agitators have been called by other names, but the design theory has remained the same, "get down quick and stir things up". The current design has remained the same since around 1990. They have heavy nickel plated brass eyes for maximum sink rate. The design is compact for easy casting and they are densely colored for maximum visibility. The soft flowing materials employed create maximum movement.
    Agitators are designed to get deep in a hurry and stay there in a controlled manner. Agitators are medium size, meaning that they are larger than traditional steelhead bucktails, but smaller in silhouette than most tube flies or stinger flies. Often they are just the right size. Though designed primarily with winter steelhead in mind, Agitators are also very productive for summer steelhead and Coho salmon. Agitators were first designed to be high-stick "nymphed" with a floating line and long leader. The heavy eyes allows them to be fished dead drifted deep along the bottom. They are perfect for fishing pocket-water. They have also proven to be very effective when fished on the swing with both floating or sinking tip lines with either single or two-hand rods. Agitators do not tangle or foul. They average 1 3/4" long.

    Agitator Black & Red
    Black and red is a winning combination any time of year. On our local rivers it is a good choice in the spring for early summer steelhead and spring Chinooks, but is also often deadly on winter steelhead.  This is a great fly design for picking the pocket water where you have to get deep in a hurry.

    Agitator Purple & Flame
    This is the most popular summer color combination  Fish this fly deep in the slots when the water is low and clear.  Can be used with a sinking tip line or suspended below a yarn strike indicator. Is also surprizingly productive when water is cold or off-color any time of year. Can be the answer when the White River mucks up the Deschutes.

    Agitator Pink & Orange
    This is a favorite early winter fly everywhere in the Pacific Northwest.  It seems to be most productive when the water is very cold.  Of course this is the condition that drives steelhead into deep water where a heavily weighted fly is most useful. If you only had one fly to fish for winter steelhead, this very well could be it.
