Steelhead Fly Tying- Jim Kelso's Egg Sucking Nymph

Join Rob Streeter's fly tying tutorial video as he ties one of the flies in his new Steelhead/Salmon Series, The Kelso Bugger, a Wooly Bugger variant with a wing based on Jim Kelso’s Wing Dinger. The Kelso Bugger is a great salmon/steelhead pattern made for easy fly tying. Rob has fished for many years with his friend, Jim Kelso. Jim lives along Lake Ontario and has caught steelhead and salmon on the fly for many years. Jim has also created a number of fly patterns. This series features Jim’s flies, and also some of Rob’s flies, for steelhead and salmon. Rob is also the author of “The Greats of Adirondack Fly Fishing,” and two other books on fly fishing. Learn to tie this effective steelhead pattern.

Rob Streeter is an award winning outdoor writer. His fly fishing articles articles have appeared in national publications including Fly Tyer, American Angler and Outdoor Life. He also was the outdoor columnist for two Upstate, New York newspapers (Albany Times Union and Amsterdam Recorder) for many years. Rob produced the photos to illustrate many of these articles.

Rob is a lifelong fly fisherman and fly tyer since he started fishing with his first fly rod at age 7. Rob has fished for saltwater species in Florida, and has fished as far north as Alaska. He has fished extensively throughout the Northeast. Rob has also tied flies for the same amount of time and has created fly patterns for trout and warmwater species.

Rob is the author of three fly fishing books including, “The New York Fly-Fishing Guide (Amato Publications), “Warmwater Fly Fishing- Finding and Catching Warmwater Species), and his new book, “The Greats of Adirondack Fly Fishing.” Rob’s new book explores the lives of six anglers who shaped fly fishing in New York’s Adirondack Mountains, including the fly patterns that they developed. The book brings forth tales that need to be told about the way that fly fishing was in the Adirondacks as we strive to return angling to its former glory there.

Rob has also produced two fly fishing DVDs including “Tying. And Fishing for Smallmouth Bass,” and “Tying and Fishing for Panfish.”
