Teddys Tackle Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Supply
These patterns have been developed locally for Vancouver Island and interior British Columbia fishing. We have tied and fished most of these patterns ourselves.  Join our Wednesday evening fly tying sessions from 7:00 - 9:00 and try some of these out with us!
Steelhead Flies
Caballero 2/21/2020
Orange Krinkle Shrimp 7/6/2014
-áThis pattern is from Fred Waugh of the Campbell River Flyfishers. He used this fly for his first spey caught steelhead.
Ratsblack 7/6/2014
This pattern is from Bill Ratcliff of the Mid Island Castaways Fly Club. This is basically a steelhead fly but a smaller version in a #6 or #8 hook is an effective trout fly.
Schlappen Wooly Bugger 12/7/2015
This is a steelhead pattern and would probably work for chum salmon in the river. It forms a nice shape in the water and has good movement.
Signal Light 2/20/2020
We started with the Freight Train steelhead fly in the 90s and the Signal Light was invented in either California or Oregon. There are lots of variations. Some are included below. The red or the chartreuse floss can be in reverse order as you like.
Ted's Prawn 2/20/2020
Ted's version of a steelhead prawn. Give it a try.
Ted's Steelhead Fly 7/6/2014
Ted taught this fly to our intermediate tying class today and it was a big hit. This is Ted's version of a Fall Favourite.
