Foxee Dog Steelhead Flies
Charles St. Pierre designed the Foxee Dog anadromous fish fly series
using traditional, proven proportions, but used the latest materials and
tying techniques. Following the lines of the famous Nordic Atlantic
Salmon Temple Dog Series, the Foxee Dog Series is tied on Waddington
Shanks rather than tubes. This places the hook back further toward the
rear of the fly, because Pacific Coast fish often grab from the rear of
the fly. Foxee Dog flies are tied with a combination of arctic fox and Angel Hair in the wing. These materials are very fine, and flow and
pulse in the water with life imitating motion. Foxee Dogs are beautiful
to look at. They shimmer and dance in the currents. Foxee Dogs are
slightly smaller and lighter in weight than most Intruder style
flies and therefore allow an angler to cover a different range of
fishing conditions. They are superbly adapted to big wide classic runs.
Best of all they catch fish.
Black & Blue: Kings and steelhead in glacial origin streams especially like this color.
Popsicle: George Cook developed an orange and purple marabou fly called the Popsicle in
the 1980's. It went on to become one of the most popular flies in Alaska and
British Columbia. Charles St. Pierre has adapted the colors to a lighter,
Black and Orange Foxee Dogs are proven to be one of the most reliable
steelhead flies, both winter and summer.
