Our hook shanks come in 32, 51 and 75mm (1, 2 and 3 inch) and are specifically designed for trailing-hook style flies. The 32 mm size is perfect for string leeches, while the 51 mm, designed for standard-sized intruders, will suit the needs of the majority of steelhead tiers. If you are looking to tie truly magnum flies (think king salmon), try our 75 mm shank, which can also be cut down to whatever size you need. All of our shanks come with pre- rounded off ends to protect your trailing hook material as well as your tippet.
Keep your rods organized and safe with OPST's neoprene and velcro rod straps. No more drooping lines, broken tips and awkwardness in your setup.
Fly tiers rejoice! You have found the ultimate dubbing spinner. Our perfectly balanced, ideally weighted dubbing spinner is the best tool you've ever tried for spinning dubbing loops. The hook is extremely easy to get in and out of a dubbing loop. No more awkward fiddling around with flexible hooks that won't grab a loop. Fly tying should be fun! Make it fun with the right tool.
The preferred ostrich feathers for tying the intruder, Dirty Hoh, and myriad other steelhead flies. Stout at the base, with fine tips, and in all the best colors for steelhead, salmon and streamer fishing. These are the original barred ostrich, and still the best.
OPST Lazar Line is the slickest, highest-performing, farthest shooting running line available today. We searched for a long time for a monofilament running line that would perform well in both hot and cold conditions, that would withstand UV and seasons of use, and that would resist memory. The result is Lazar Line, a line with so little memory you will forget you're fishing mono. With a low, calculated stretch, Lazar Line ties extremely sleek and strong knots. It comes in 25, 20, 35, 40 and 50 pound test.
