Most of those are typical steelhead flies..but ..I don't waste time with a lot of the spey designs..too much work for snagging most of them on the bottom(cruising the bottom)... :lol: I usually now stick with quick-to-tie marabou patterns..

I have to disagree with the author of the article..If you get into steelhead and salmon fishing,several people have written books about steelhead fishing with jigs and others have chapters of jig fishing,especially in Canada where jigs are combined with floats and have created an entirely "new"(well,years ago)productive method of catching them and salmon.
There is also a fine line between trout flies that have a large metal "bead head" and "jigs",pretty much the same thing and very popular right now for getting flies down deeper..but allowed in special "Flyfishing Only" areas..as long as that bead eye is an "integral part of the tied fly"..and not just a Big-A** splitshot clamped on there for added weight.... :lol:

The nice thing about the Eco Billy kettle is that the lid comes off so you can actually scrub out the inside :D BUT there is no fire bowl so the fire burns right on the ground or your own supplied metal plate or bowl. :roll:

The maker says the nice thing about the Billy is
Eco billy boils water in under 5 minutes using only a handful of leaves and twigs


Not bad, a hand full of leaves and twigs :D

I have made several mods to my Ghillie kettle. Each time I have taken it out on a hike or canoe trip I come up with another mod for it. It has worked great so far and was a good investment especially for winter hiking and snow shoeing.

It's easier to post a link to a off the grid/survival forum I mod. (non ad supported)
