Are they holding right behind a log jam? On the far side of fast current? The Liquid Wrench Fly will pry them out! An ultra-fast sinking tungsten bead on a 90 degree hook will drop this fly into the tightest of spots. New for 2019, the pink and purple Aleutian Queen color is great for steelhead, but can be even deadlier on silvers. A must for both species.
Steelhead Liquid Wrench #1 – Aleutian Queen
An AFFG exclusive fly you won’t find anywhere else. Tied on a size 1 Gamakatsu 90° jig hook matched with a 7/32″ Tungsten Slotted Bead, the Liquid Wrench drops like a rock and will break the rust on even the most lock jawed of fish.
Fish this fly on a floating line, Rio Salmon Steelhead Leader in 12lb test and Thingamabobber Indicator. Swing it, jig it, or dead drift it.
