Although Harry Lemire is always rmembered for his tied-in-hand Atlantic salmon flies, his legacy included a lot of interesting and innovative steelhead patterns as well. Best-known is probably the Grease-Liner, but here are a couple more; the Thompson River Caddis and the Fall Caddis. The two differ mostly in the Thompson River Caddis' use of pheasant "church window" feathers laid flat and the Fall Caddis' paired and tented hen hackle wings.
