In this video, Alex ties a steelhead shrimp fly that could be used both for winter and summer steelhead.
Tie them in different sizes appropriate for the river or stream you’ll be fishing. With different colored patterns this fly could be deadly in estuaries, coastal streams, and PNW rivers.
Alex uses Alec Jackson hooks that are sharp, set deep, and are strong. Proven again and again.
