Steelhead Fly Recipe… Alevin Martinez by Steve Martinez
This fly is designed to fish when swung down-stream or stripped with short strips. Peak timing for this fly is February through June, focusing on the hatching salmon and then the steelhead. I tied this fly smaller to better represent the size of a real alevin but have evolved to this larger size because it catches more fish.
Best For… steelhead and trout Could Also Be Used For… panfish
***Materials listed in tying order
Hook… TMC 3761, size 6
Note: The only place I know to get this loose spun yarn is FlyMasters in Indianapolis.
