Caddis Flies

Caddis Flies

Caddisflies are relatively large aquatic insects that provide hungry trout with an excellent source of nutritional protein. There are literally thousands of species of caddis across the globe so it's often helpful to generalize caddis by their color and size; an angler would have to have a thousand fly boxes to match every local species of caddis. Here are the Caddis fly patterns that fill our fly boxes.

Fly Fishing For Steelhead

Fly Fishing For Steelhead

Fly fishing for Steelhead is an incredibly rewarding experience. However it is usually not without some suffering (if

you can call it that.) From the rainy coast of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia to the freezing

reaches of the more inland rivers, Steelhead inhabit some pretty extraordinary places. Steelheaders will endure some harsh

conditions to tie into a Steelhead. Here is collection of gear that is designed for and endorsed by the top Steelheading

guides in Pacific North West.

Fly Fishing Leaders

Fly Fishing Leaders

A Leader is what you connect to the end of your fly line. Generally, this is achieved with a loop to loop connection. When choosing a leader you will want to consider a number of factors. first, whether you want a leader made nylon of fluorocarbon. They both have advantages and disadvantages. Let's start with nylon, nylon leader will float and are well suited for beginners because they are less expensive and they maintain 80% of their break strength when an unintentional knot (usually and overhand knot sometimes called a wind knot) is put into it. Nylon also knots well as it is a softer material and tends to bond well with its self. Nylon because it is soft tends not to be very abrasion resistant and is prone to breakage in this way. Choose mono for sections of leader you want to float. Fluorocarbon, fluoro for short, is a better choice subsurface because it sinks, becomes nearly invisible underwater, and is more abrasion resistant. Fluoro is the natural choice when nymphing or other subsurface fishing for these reasons. Fluoro, unlike mono, will drop to about 20% of its break strength if a 'wind knot' is put into it. The next thing to consider is the length of your leader. Long leaders are tougher to cast but are better for wary fish as they put more distance between your fly and your fly line. If you have a large wind resistant fly you need the power from the fly line to cast the fly and straighten the leader. So for a grasshopper pattern, we would recommend a 7.5ft 3x leader and for a tiny mayfly on a clear slow-moving spring creek, we would recommend 12ft 6x leader. Catch our drift?

Simms G4Z WADER

Fly Fishing Waders

Fly fishers, especially those who ply cold waters for the fish they hope to hook up with, usually have to get wet to get on their quarry. Waders have been around in some form or another for a long time now and are as part of the mythology of fly fishing as creel, rod, reel, and the flies themselves. Today's modern wader designs employ high tech materials, innovative construction, and athletic tailoring designed to not only protect you from the elements, but to help you stay as comfortable and safe as possible when you're in the river, wading the flat, or trying to stay dry on the boat. At Lost Coast Outfitters, we think an appropriate pair of waders can mean the difference between a good day of fishing and a great one. That's why we offer the very best waders from Simms Fishing Products, Redington, and Patagonia. Waders play a central part of the fly fishing game, so why scrimp on your own safety, comfort, and fun?
