    The abdomen appears more orange in color than chartreuse... am I going color blind?

    If the primary colors are chartreuse and pink, those are the color combinations of the patterns that catch the most steelhead for me on the Oregon coastal rivers.

    Gene, single thread used to tie the fly and you can see the chartreuse thread color behind the bead. I noticed same on abdomen - likely a combination of hook finish and the llama altering the hue of the thread?
