Creamsicle is a great color for hitting fish fresh out of the salt. And on our short coastal rivers that describes a lot of fish. 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.
Steelhead Liquid Wrench #1 – Creamsicle
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.
