Giveaway Wednesday- Feed Your Local Steelhead

Well, the annual spring snow storm is raging outside this morning, and while this may seem bad for you, it's good for one reason- steelhead.  That's right, our chrome friends love this kind of weather and ride it like a rented mule.  Since they are being so kind as to come visit, I think we should show them some Trout Country hospitality and rustle up some grub. 
 This weeks giveaway is one dozen flies that Madame Chrome loves as an appetizer.  In the mix we have some sac fry, egg-sucking buggers, some bead head eggs, and fire butts.  Sure to tickle the palate and make them dance a jig for you.  Now again- I'm no Mike Schmidt, but I do catch fish on these. Nothing fancy to enter- just leave a comment below and I'll do a drawing on Sunday March 27.  Lorin the Drawing Girl will do the honors.  Entry period ends at 7 PM.  As always, I'm a little soft in the head and will probably throw in a few extra flies.

Coming soon- I need help testing some streamers.

mmmm...sac fry

  6. Put me in Coach. Maybe some of your flies will help turn the tide in my Steelhead fishing. Note I said fishing, not catching, as I've yet to catch one.

  10. Nice flies. I think my AR Rainbows would like those just as much as their Steelhead cousins. Looking forward to this streamer testing you speak of.

  13. Put me in the hat...love to try these flies. I think that they are more likely to see some big southern PA trout than steelies though.
