    Default Orange and Pink Feather Wing

    A variation of Marty Howard's Orange and Pink Feather Wing. These just flat out look cool. Maybe a little heavy on the dressing...but looks fishy to me.

    You're tying some great looking stuff buddy, please don't forget to snap a picture if you get one stuck on these flies.

    I'll try. I fish alone most times which makes picture taking tricky. I will be in the Seattle area next week...so I might sneak out for a day or two. Stay posted..... looks like most rivers are blown out. My luck.

    I think its great! The dressing says winter steelhead. Flies and tubes similar to that and way bushier and bigger are our top producers.
