While doing seminars at the Toronto Sportsman Show I had the pleasure of meeting a long-time fan named Fan Liang. Fan contacted me a while back seeking some help to catch steelhead. I tried my best to give him tips that would produce results for him.
As you can see from the image above, he has done well and has in-fact caught many steelhead of all sizes using a custom-tied egg-fly which he created.
This egg-fly works especially well in clearer water and shallower pools and run. The natural egg color really works and gets even leary steelhead to strike.
This bright egg color is ideal to use in deeper pools and runs and especially when the water is turbid. Fan well done and thanks for sharing with us your fly pattern…you have created a fish producing fly!!
