I went and tied a number of these after you posted it a while back. Its a very effective fly here using a darker green...and also does well with light tan body w/rusty thorax.

excellent pattern and great share Larry.

THANK YOU!!

Many of 'us' here on the upper Rogue use a two fly system for Steelhead fishing. This type of fly, done on a size 8 - 12 is more often than not, the 'trailer.' First fly gets their attention, the second is what the fish will usually jump on.

A good thing me thinks?
