Summer Patterns

Haven't forgotten about posting the summer prawn / pink pupa patterns, just need to get to the bench.

The timing is right to discuss summer steelhead success stories and get the mindset tuned into the summer season.

I'd have to say that prawn / pupa pair has done the most subsurface damage for me over the early summer months, and a wide range of patterns including a caddis surface fly do the most in the late summer and fall. Small rats (matuka) all the way down to #8 have been good on very light tips as well. Patterns like freight trains, purple butt speys, and other sparse dark patterns have been great greaselined flies for me too.

I am on schedule for a fall fling, but the original start of september thing won't fly. My daughter moves into a dorm at Boston University that week! HOLY ####!

I'm gonna need to fish bad
