Bill Ingersoll's brainchild, the S.T.S. Series (salmon, trout, and steelhead), is a testament to time-tested excellence in fly fishing. These flies have proven their worth, consistently attracting and catching salmon and steelhead across the globe. While Bill is renowned as a steelhead fly-fishing addict, his passion extends to pursuing smallmouth, pike, and trout. His multifaceted involvement in the fly-fishing industry encompasses various roles, including commercial tying, instruction, owning fly shops and guiding services, writing, and field testing.
The S.T.S. series, carefully crafted by Bill, has endured the test of time, and its reliability in catching steelhead and salmon remains unmatched worldwide. The success of these flies lies in the meticulous attention to detail—carefully selected color schemes, materials, sizes, and strategically incorporated triggers make them irresistibly suggestive to the target species. The S.T.S. series covers a comprehensive range of presentations, from imitating shiners, shellfish, and bottom dwellers to mimicking leeches, attractors, stoneflies, mayflies, caddis, and eggs. Whether you're targeting salmon or steelhead, these versatile flies are designed to entice and hook these elusive fish, delivering consistent results on every adventure.
