Summer Steelhead Fly Tying Contest getting impressive entries

Thanks to those who have participated in our first of many fly tying contests. For more info on the Steelhead Fly Tying contest click here. Entries are coming in strong now and the flies look fantastic!

Here are a couple more gorgeous patterns. Steelhead runs locally have been a bit slim. Hopefully we will see a nice burst of fish this fall. The North Umpqua and Deschutes have been flat out tough. Regardless of fish numbers swinging a sweet fly through your favorite run is a bonus. Check out a few more entries.
