Tube Grantham Sedge – Wake # 6
The Grantham Sedge: A surface fly that is well known on all Steelhead rivers in North America – A caddisfly imitation that brings steelheads to the top. The dubbing used on the original Grantham Sedge is: Arizona Simi Seal dubbing, colour # 19 Canadian Brown
Angler behind the fish Mr. Ron Grantham. The rod: A split cane rod of Mr. Grantham’s own design fitted with a Hardy St. Andrew reel. A super stylish photo taken by Mr. Chris Purcell
Ron lives in Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada – builds custom split cane rods and has been fly fishing and tying flies for + 40 years . His passion is that of fishing remote BC rivers for summer-run steelhead using floating fly lines and skating… Grantham Sedge flies.
This fly and many other of our wake flies are tied on our Riffling hitch tube 3.2 millimetres –
This a 45-millimeter version – equivalent to a # 4 – 6 streamer hook – Here shown with an Owner Iseama 1/0 single hook
Fish your fly with the hook up-side-down
Just like some anglers will fish the hook reversed on the Quigley’s Dragon Gurgler – they would also use this technique on their Tube Grantham Sedge – to do so in an easy and smart way you may use a so-called egg hook or up-eye hook– as seen fitted on the fly in the image to the lift. The up-eye hook will enable you to get a different angle on the hook and the low-memory medium soft tubing this steelhead wake Bomber is tied on, is well suited to accommodate such a fly fishing method.
