Jay’s Summer Steelhead Chenille Series

It’s looking like another excellent summer Steelhead year in the Pacific Northwest. Rumor, suggestion, theory, preliminary numbers, has the Deschutes even better in 2010 than the record of 2009. The North Umpqua is fishing reasonably well right now. The Willamette, McKenzie, North Santiam, South Santiam all have good numbers of fish in them. If you are looking for an easy to tie productive fly pattern Jay Nicholas has it done for you. Check it out in the video below, many more┬áto come.–CD
