Winter Steelhead Flies for discriminating anglers
"Winter is coming", sounds like a line stolen from the popular TV series, "Game of Thrones", but as this is being written it is raining hard in Welches, Oregon and the local rivers are now at winter levels, and Chinooks, Cohos and Steelhead are starting to show. The season is upon us, and it is time to check your fly boxes and the rest of your cold season gear.
Flies are constantly evolving as our understanding of game fish and the prey they eat, progresses. The sport of fly fishing really is a search for knowledge of the natural world around us, especially the aquatic components. The evolution of this knowledge can be traced in the history of fly tying skills and the progression of fly patterns over the past 500 years.  The rise of industrial technology has played a role. Most modern flies still contain natural materials that were available in the beginning.  But, many key components used in the latest winter steelhead flies have only been available in the last few years.  The Fly Fishing Shop has always been on the cutting edge of winter steelhead fly development. We remain on the forefront today!         CONTINUED BELOW...

CONTINUED FROM ABOVE: On the average, winter steelhead flies are getting larger.  This is not only because we are learning how to tie larger flies, but more importantly we are developing the tackle and skills to fish larger flies more comfortably. Certain strains of steelhead prefer large flies. Many of them return to our rivers during the winter months.
Development of the most important new patterns, is most naturally by the hardest working professional fly fishing guides.  If you are a guide, your career is dependent on your ability to be able to get your clients hooked up. It stands to reason if you spend 100-200 days a year fishing for steelhead, you are going to learn a lot about how to catch them.  
Pictured above is a selection of flies that are on the cutting edge of winter steelhead fly development.  These patterns were developed and proven by the area's best winter steelhead guides: Mark Bachmann, Mike Kinney, Brian Silvey, Marty Sheppard, Tom Larimer, Brian Kite, Scott Howell, George Cook, Travis Johnson, and Charles St. Pierre. Our Company roots are in winter steelhead fly fishing.  We have the most complete selection of winter steelhead fly fishing gear in the region, if not the world.  Our aim is to remain the leader and bring you the best winter steelhead fly fishing tackle available, and this includes the best selection of winter steelhead flies.  We also intend to make this collection most convenient to access on the Internet.
 
OPST SWING HOOKS
There is little doubt that barbless hooks cause less trauma than barbed hooks. Fly fishers have always led the way in conserving wild fish of all kinds. Wild steelhead and salmon are extremely valuable and also somewhat fragile. The extra handling needed to remove barbed hooks can't be a plus for fish survival during the release. If you have ever had a barbed hook penetrate your own skin, you know this for sure. OPST has engineered a series of hooks that are designed to hold fish while playing them to your hand, and then facilitate the release process when you want to let them go.
There is no denying that the guys a OPST have a lot of practical experience. They are all professional fly fishing guides who spend (and have spent) many full seasons helping themselves and their clients to the choicest pieces of anadromous fish water in North America. They are relentless in the search for excellence in their tackle and their use of it to bring them success. OPST Swing Hooks are incredibly sharp and well finished with black chrome so that they can be used in both fresh and saltwater. They are easy to sharpen and even small sizes are very strong. Even the snap top lid on the tough little box that these come in is designed for efficiency and practical use in the field.
Check out our extensive selection of tube fly hooks.

Pro SportFisher Jungle Cock HD Other Pro SportFisher Products
Jungle Cock neck feathers have been an integral part of classic flies for anadromous fish since the British East India Company started doing business in India in 1757. By the nineteenth century nearly all flies used for Atlantic Salmon had eyes made from Jungle Cock nails. By the twentieth century the demand had become so high that the Indian Jungle Fowl had been harvested nearly to extinction. Trade in feathers of these wild birds was made illegal on an international basis. Domestication of Jungle Cock birds is on going, but unable to keep up with the demand, and capes are very expensive, and is restrictive.
The production of a manufactured substitute was unsuccessful until the introduction of the Pro Jungle cock HD, and we are very proud to present the best substitute ever made. Through advanced printing and cutting technology Pro SportFisher has created a photorealistic substitute that is far stronger than the original. These feather substitute are able to bend and be shaped
into a desired profile by pulling the JC`HD between your thumbs. Add to this the precise cut and you have a product that is not only environmental sustainable but perfect every time. A layer of UV Varnish completes the 3D effect and even hard core old school fly tiers have a hard time telling the difference between the real thing and the Pro Jungle cock HD. Fact is, these facsimiles are much easier to tie with than the real feathers.
The easiest way to use Pro SportFisher Jungle Cock HD is to tie them inside out facing forward from the eye of the hook at the very beginning of the fly construction. Then after the entire fly has been tied, fold the jungle cock eyes back, along side of the fly and and secure them in this position by finishing the head of the fly. If this method is used, the entire fly has to unravel before the Jungle Cock HD will come loose. This method would be difficult to use with real jungle cock feathers, but is easy with Pro SportFisher Jungle Cock HD. Pro SportFisher Jungle Cock HD comes in the color to match the real feathers, and other synthetic colors that will add spice to your finished flies.
