That is a light pink, covered by orange popsicle with some flashabou and crystal flash mixed in between the first and second marabou tip.

 

2 light pink marabou tips tied folded and palmered

pink and orange Krystal Flash

1 orange marabou palmered on top.

1 orange guinea feather on top

 

swung on a 7 foot fast sinking rio leader and 12 lbs maxima tippet off my spey.

 

was swinging about 2 feet below the surface of a run with some spawning zombies in it. took 3 steel out of the same run.

 

took 1 on chartruece and black

and had one on for 1 jump on a pink and purple popsicle as well

Shaq swinging speys for steel is something I have decided to try out this fall/winter, usually I run nymphs for them but have been wanting to get into swinging some speys. Any tips/advice you can offer to me about setting up for swinging speys, flies to use (Great lakes-Michigan) or anything at all that might help out?

 

 

Thanks

 

Steve

That is the Salmon River.

 

Steel,

This is my third year swinging speys and the first that I have totally commited myself to doing it every trip all day. I have hooked more steelhead than kings this year because I have figured out that by swinging flies above kings, the steelies will break out of formation more than the salmon will. I have had some CRUSHING Strikes by male kings. In fact every king I have hooked this year has been the biggest baddest freshest male in the group so thats good, The steelhead have been especially aggresive in the 50 degree plus water so it's been exciting to say the least. I use a floating delta-spey line from Airflo and a 7 foot airflo sinking leaders. They make a 3 inch/sec, a 5 inch/ sec and a 7 inch/sec and that seems to be enough to get the strikes. Most of the fish I have hit have been in moderate currents, and I believe the fly stays 2-3 feet above the bottom as far as I can tell.
