Welcome to Alley Grabs Guide Service. My name is Gareth Thomas, and I've been fly fishing for Great Lakes steelhead since 1998. The Lake Erie tributaries of Northeast Ohio, known collectively as Steelhead Alley, provide fly anglers an unparalleled opportunity to connect with powerful lake-run steelhead. I'm confident I can help you strike Ohio chrome!
I've been fly fishing the Alley since 2006 and have intimate knowledge of the waters in the region. While I'm very much at home guiding with nymph-and-indicator rigs, I take particular pride in offering trips on the Spey rod, swinging my own hand-tied flies. The tight-line grab is the pinnacle of your steelhead fishing experience!
Steelhead Alley is a beautiful and accessible steelhead fishery. Contact me for your steelhead trip of a lifetime! Get grabbed!
