Skeena Standard Heavy Jig Steelhead Tube Fly Recipe

Skeena Standard Heavy Jig Steelhead Tube Fly Recipe

The Skeena Standard is a great fly for anyone looking to get their feet wet in tying tube flies and it is also a very effective fly to fish! The Skeena Standard has pretty much everything I look for in a Steelhead Fly; lots of movement flash incorporated in it to grab their attention, a great tapered profile and colour contrast.

Fish this like you would any other Steelhead fly swinging it down and across your favourite run, if there is a player in the pool it will be quick to let you know what it thinks of this fly with a big aggressive grab.

Try one out and let us know how it goes!
