This series of flies is based on our new Snow Runner brushes. This material allows for a beautiful tear drop shaped wing with good translucency and excellent shape retention and mobility in the water. The sparse amount of materials makes for a fly that casts easy, yet has a big profile. We have designed the “Runners” on our 3mm tubes in combination with our 3.2mm cone heads. This makes for a nearly indestructible fly. “Runners” are available in colour combinations that have proven effective for west-coast steelhead. We have left the tubes fairly long so that you can either insert a straight eyed hook directly into the 3mm tube, or you can shorten the tube a bit and fish a free swinging hook. Both methods work well and create solid hook ups. All “Runners” are tied by master custom tier and SRFS team member Tomasz Bogdanovicz and Tomek Nawatkowsky from Pike Terror Flies.
* NOTE: all tube flies come without a hook. We suggest a straight eye, off-set bait style hook, for connected rigging. For looped riggings we suggest a 45 degree up-eye, bait style hook, off-set, such as a Partridge Patriot Intruder hook. For dry flies we suggest the Partridge Patriot Stinger, inserted up-side-down.
