Salmon River Flea aka the Steelhead Flea

The Salmon River Flea a.k.a. the Steelhead Flea is a really simple but effective pattern for fishing the large salmonids that occupy the 13 miles of New York's Salmon River. The pattern calls for Poly Yarn, but I will often substitute it for Ep Fiber or Congo Hair.
The fly is one you can pull out when nothing else seems to be getting a look. It'll save you from a skunk day. The fly is good for King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Brown trout and both strains of the steelhead (Washington and the Skamania) that call the river home for a while.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
