Hot Head Summer Steelhead Tube Fly Tying Video

Summer Steelhead fishing has been excellent on the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers of late. With our run size nearing 24,000 fish over Willamette Falls there are plenty of Steelhead around. One of our favorite and most effective fly styles the past couple of seasons has been a simple tube fly.

In this video Tony Torrence demonstrates how to tie one of these Steelhead Tube flies using Eumer Arctic fox and Eumer Finnish Racoon. The fly is tied sparsely to enhance movement and fish well during clear Summer conditions.
