Calling all Steelhead Fly Tiers

April Vokey

April Vokey is looking for your flies, your steelhead flies. This is a fundraiser for the Steelhead Society, for habitat restoration and other projects.  Send your flies to April and she will distribute to several fly shops across BC. Your flies will be purchased by anglers and all of the proceeds going to the Steelhead Society.  If you tie, tie some extras up and send them in. If you are a steeheader, look into your boxes and see what you can donate.  Put those flies in an envelope and send to:

April Vokey
8505 Norman Cres.
Chilliwack, B.C.
Canada
V2P 5C6

Steelhead season is in full swing, which means the season for purchasing steelhead flies is ending in a couple of months. So, please act now and send your flies in.

Its time to build up those karma points.

  • 4 Fishing Tip // Jul 15, 2009 at 9:44 pm

    use these 3 fishing tips too.1. Fish face upstream. If you are behind them, you can catch them directly in front of you.2. If you can see to the bottom of the creek, they can see you! Approaching a creek or stream from the bank often spooks fish.3. It is much easier to cast to a pocket, pool or small riffle from the center of a stream and maintain a slow retrieve. Best of all you are in an ideal position to cast effectively towards either bank.
