I have been using steelhead flies like twin tube bunnies and such. I haven't been catching the numbers, but the fish are much bigger. I get a lot of strikes where the fly gets hammered, but no hook ups. I figure the fish are just slamming it in the middle or are biting onto the material, but not the area that the hook is. When I switch to softhackles or traditional wets, my numbers shoot up as well as my hook ups, but I get a lot of fish in the 8-12" size. Big fly big fish?
