Crandall’s Provider Unweighted: 3 Pack Steelhead Flies
Crandall’s Provider is a standby pattern for anywhere you fly fish for steelhead. The black and blue combo is a well-known home run and the movement of the ostrich herl in this pattern is a provider from Northern California to Canada! The red collar ads a bit of bloody gills and just the right blend of flash in the wing delivers about everything a steelhead wants. This fly was originally designed on the Oregon coast with Nick Wheeler (of Royal Treatment Fly Fishing Shop), who was fishing one of my prototypes. Nick landed three steelhead on it that day and saved it from multiple branches that nearly claimed it. The following day, client Jeff Evershed landed a 17 pound chrome rocket on the Crandall’s Provider. It was at that moment that we knew we had a killer combination.
Now years later it’s still our #1 Best Provider!
