    I have decided on tying an egg sucking leech.

    Mark, please update the original post accordingly. Thanks!

    Awesome, more tiers! Once I figure out the correct way to tie this steelhead hammer, that might be my pattern... I need to figure out how to make the woven body, since while I like the Orvis pattern, the knock-off I don't quite like as much!

    Someone post a link where I can see some representative patterns. I've got a bunch of florescent materials for tying western paterns and I like tying on those big hooks. When I can see what some of these look like. I'll decide if I want in.

    Here are the steelhead flies ORVIS sells. I believe they are pretty representative of the type of fly you want to tie
