Default The Coal Car

Another established pattern for steelhead and salmon. Many of the flies in the steelhead thread are in fact dual purpose flies when applied to Silver Salmon. The silvers are very likely to hit a fly that is swung near and this is one of them. Not my best effort at tying a fly but it is new and gives the general idea of the look when in the vise.
