Anyone use the basic rolled muddler when fly fishing for steelhead? if so any luck? I've been using them alot on the chekamus and am getting quite a few dollies.. but no steel so far!

i have never tried them myself but was talking to a Spey fisherman about a month or so back and he said he had a couple bumps fishing one. a small one like a size10 i think he said. sure shocked me cause i never thought of using those for steel :confused: good thing i can tie them :thumbup:

Rolled muddlers are a very versatile fly, springs love them as well. Try your cutthroat minnow patterns for steelhead, I know they eat them after today, I saw a guy bonk a clean doe steelhead, and when he was cleaning it out, I asked him i was curious to disect its stomach, (Gave me some weird looks for asking such a question , but i didnt care i wanted to see LOL !!!) and i was shocked to see its belly FULL of salmon fry !!!
