OMR Legend and Murphey

Steelhead on the Fly. Faith. Passion. Obsession.

Fight like a Bulldog Fish Like a Pro

Many days have been spent chasing steelhead on the Grande Ronde with my good friend Mark Few, I so appreciate the days on the river we have spent swinging flies for steelies with the spey rods, or when things get more difficult, nothing beats a double cheeseburger nymph'ed through a bucket

of fish with a switch rod. and GO ZAGS!


Well its been over a decade that Old Man River aka Faye Mills and I started the vision quest of steelhead fishing with flies.  Our first taste of success would have found us with 9ft 7 wt rods and Madison Specials in hand.  Now you would be hard pressed to find OMR without a Spey rod in his clutches. Shooting heads, mow tips, poly leaders, skaters, and intruders are now the nomenclatures used during our days swinging for Steel! The Tug is the Drug!
