Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Combination I loved the steelhead hammer because its a mix of steelhead/salmon eggs which steelhead love when they're on their post-spawn run back to the lake and a small of both worlds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steelhead Candy!!! I'm in the process of stocking up on Steelhead flies, for fishing the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY. I read an artical that recommended flies that had been offered in an Orvis e-mail I recieved. So, I ordered a bunch... When they arrived, I was very impressed with the quality of these flies!!! I haven't had the chance to use them, but I'll tell you this... If I was a big Steelhead, I'd grab them!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not even close... Flies I was shipped were nothing like pictured... Pictured flies are tied professionally on a scud hook and what I was shipped was tied on a straight shanked hook and was nothing more than a big ball of blue estaz with a black tail. Certainly not what I would expect from Orvis for what was paid... Don't bother with these...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a true way to hammer steelhead This fly is excellent and has landed many 12-16 pound steelies for me in the white river. It will trigger a strike when spawn eggs will not. CS Class of 1979
