Trey Combs, Jeff Cottrell, Jack Mitchell, and Michael Davidchik have designed, tested and introduced some of the most effective contemporary steelhead patterns commercially available today. Rainy’s is proud to endorse, manufacture and sell this Steelhead Underground series.
Steelie Mike’s ROCKET MINNOWS – A marabou steelhead swing pattern that maintains a large profile, contrast, and body without excess weight allowing the fly to be pulled out of the water easily and casted in touch-and-go applications. Best used with sustained anchor casting with skagit lines and is light enough for both Scandinavian and long-belly lines.
Use the green/red when the water is clear both during periods of low light and during the day. Use the purple/pink after a big rain when the water is clearing.
