November is the perfect month to get ready for winter steelhead season. Rods, reels, lines and waders should be checked, fresh tippet purchased, and a generous selection of new fly patterns tied (or purchased). If you are looking for inspiration for a great winter steelhead pattern, check out the Tandem Tube Fly.
RIO’s Tandem Tube features a long bunny strip that gives lots of seductive movement in the water. The fly has a large profile (essential for winter fishing) and a heavy cone on the front to get down in cold water. With six color options available, there is a fly for every water color and fishery out there.
There is no better way to fish a Tandem Tube in the winter months than on the end of an InTouch 3D MOW Tip. These tips ensure the smoothest transition of energy when casting, and the very best depth control when fishing. All you need between your fly and your 3D MOW Tip is a short (4ft) length of level 16-20lb tippet material.
In case you missed it…
In this link to the previous RIO Fly Fishing Tip, Josh Zelina shows how to correctly attach a shooting head to a shooting line – and how to ensure the head is the right way round for correct performance. Enjoy.
