How to Tie a Steelie Omelet

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “Some people call the Steelhead Omelet simply an ‘Estaz Egg’ and a number of our friends across the pond might call it a ‘Blob Fly.’ Whatever you call it, there’s no disputing that trout, and steelhead in particular, have a hard time resisting it.  Because I’m tying this one for steelhead, I’m going to use a nice, sturdy Dai-Riki #135 in a size 10.”
