Sure have run into a lot of Steelheaders who are way too serious. This is a magnificent passion and should be pursued with joy  and wonder. Something that has always helped us in this department was experimenting with ridiculous flies. We’d agree to tie a crazy fly and fish it for a day, a week , a month and compare results. It’s really fun and challenging and you’ll learn a lot, too.   
   Out of this exercise came some great discoveries. One of my all-time favorites is the MINIMALIST. A silver hook, sparse black bucktail (in the round) and red thread head. Try it!                                          

The Genessee River, Rochester NY.T
his is where all Great Lakes Steelhead started over 120 years ago.
