Fly of the Week: TFP Copperhead & Boomslang


If you’ve fished steelhead during the summer, then you’ve fished low, warm water. These flies are the Slump Buster of summer run swinging steelhead flies. These flies move the pickiest of fish in low water on a sunny day almost as good as other non…swinging…. techniques. However, if you like swinging flies even against the odds, these flies will bring a bite. Fish them swung, fish them tight line in heavy seams, fish them to steelhead. Check out the Copperhead and the Boomslang.

I grew up in eastern Washington fishing or hunting every chance I could. My hobbies quickly turned into addictions and I was constantly on the Columbia River swinging flies for steelhead. I headed to the westside to attend college and received a degree in physics. This proved to be difficult due to the new addiction of spey casting to steelhead on the rivers of western Washington. After graduating, I moved to Sandpoint, ID where I married my college sweetheart. I opened my own fly shop and ran it successfully for 6 years until I merged with Big R Fly Shop. Now my days are spent loving the outdoors, with my wife and two boys, who certainly got bit by the fishing bug, and teaching anglers to enjoy the sport of fly fishing and spey casting.
