Winter Steelhead Cocktail Shrimp Fly Tying Video

Wintersteelheadcocktailshrimp

It’s prime time to get after Winter Steelhead around the state of Oregon. Water conditions are excellent and in some cases getting really low and clear. The Cocktail Shrimp fly was designed to fish by itself (or with another fly to get it down quickly) in low clear water with spooky pressured fish. The fly has those “Shrimpy Steelhead Colors” and a hefty hook you want in a fly this time of year. In addition is uses Hareline Dubbin Pseudo Hackle which is an excellent synthetic hackle we have been using more and more. Have a few of these in the box for this years Winter Steelheading adventures.
