Rogue River December Steelhead, Al’s Special Gold Brooch Fly Pin


December 2nd Rogue River chrome and Cabela’s Spey rod. Rio heads and sink tips.


Hooked up in the high, grey water of December. December steelhead on my mind.


Al’s Special gold brooch fly pin. Al Knudson was an early pioneering fly tier of the early 19th Century. He was one of the first to use large flies for winter steelhead. Knudson’s streamer patterns are little remembered today, but surely would fish just as well now as they did in the old days.
