Default PIG of a steelhead

I thought I would show you guys a whopper of a steelhead from Buffalo NY. Most people think of us as the snow capital of the world, but we have some monster fish here. This one tipped the scales at 13 lbs and was caught by my father on a fly i created called the black nose dace. Brown white black marabou tied on a jighead hook with flashabou (pearl) and red tying thread. A good fly for big fish.
