Default What a Steelhead will hit?

We all know that sometimes it's up to the fish on any certain day, here I'm just waiting for my next chance to show them a fly. This pattern has been around for a while and is part of my steelhead box.

Attachment 1562Attachment 1561

Hook: #2 or #4 short heavy wet fly type, your choice
Head: Black tying cord
Tail: Claret tips or Amherst pheasant crest
Body: Claret wool with claret palmered hackle
Wing: Grey Fox as long as the tail
Shoulders: Jungle Cock tied high and long
Collar: Lemon Yellow hackle wound as long as the palmered body

Name: Can you find it? Do you know this fly? I'll rep the first correct answer.

Hint; something to do with trains

I'm sorry, I'll take the time to write a summary of origin and post it in a little while. I'm just bored.

You're right Whisperer, I will tone it down so that they are more common.

The fly on this thread is called the Railbird. First tied around 1900 and used rail bird feathers for the wing. By 1925 the wing had morphed to Grey fox tail or body hair and was being fished all along the Pacific coast for steelhead. Still effective today even here in Alaska for both sea run and river born rainbow trout.

Thanks G Mc F,

It means alot to me when you say that. I like your egg sucking buggers too, on any given day the bugger will catch more fish than the pretty boy.
