What's in your fly box?

Souvenirs from Alaska. They tell me these are for reds, kings, and steelhead. You get to figure out which is which.

Well, if you want us to guess, I would say the bottom row is for steel and kings, anything chartruese would be for reds (aka sockeye) and olive would be for silvers aka coho.

Im no expert. It wasn't meant to be a guessing game; I would be wrong half the time if I tried to remember what each one was for but yeah, thats pretty much what I was told.

My fly box would look pathetic except for the generosity of bigsteel. I lost mine to the Santiam river and he helped me get my collection back (and a few from Bimart and Two Rivers Fly Shop)....I want to try tying some of my own and one day I will...job first...:D

Hey mlt...what size spruces are those? 2's, 4's? Also, the one on the left has a ruffled hackle but the one on the right looks like the hook's been bent and the body muffed so I'm not sure.:think: But if I had to bet I'd say the right one's been on a steelheed lip.

These are 4s. I haven't used these guys until the last trip, but now I'm wondering whether I should or not. I don't feel like these hooks are meant for PNW Steelhead. You can tell that how the fish liked it though by looking at the body of the spruce as well. They were identical before the fish hit.
