    Everybody has their own favorite version of the G.P. and this is my favorite. Once again, this pattern was shown to me by a guide in B.C..

    This fly provides alot of action in the water and I especially like the bead head to get the fly down. I like the profile and the steelhead seem to like it too.

    Tail: Black Calf Tail on top of which brown marabou is tied in.
    Body: Black Wool ribbed with two strands of silver oval. Black Schlappen is tied in at the half point and wrapped forward.
    Pincers: Golden Pheasant tippets
    Back: Black Hen pheasant
