Martini

Another Aqua Flies Traditional Summer Steelhead pattern. From fly designer and guide Jim Zech.

This one doesn't require high level thought on a subatomic level. Ernest Hemingway in A Farewell to Arms wrote “I’ve never tasted anything so cool and clean...They make me feel civilized”. So true until I hit about 3....then you better look out.
