I haven't really done much nymphing for steelhead. I guess I have mostly seen guys out there swinging flies so I figured that’s the way to go. It's something I'll definitely do now though. I have to look into what flies are going to be good for that so I can tie some up. Hear is a picture of the flies I have made and have been using. I numbered them just incase someone would like to comment on any one in particular. The only ones here I haven’t used yet are 3a-b these would be more for nymphing I guess...?
In the December issue of STS there is an article that talks about balancing steelhead swinging flies. I just red it so I'm going to have to pay attention to how my flies "swim" next time I go out (witch will be tomorrow). I never would have thought that that would be so important.
Well I'll let you all know how I do on the upper sandy tomorrow. I know it's still high (around 11') but I'm hoping the color will be good at least.
