    As much as I would like to take credit for the effective use of coral in Steelhead Fly Fishing I am afraid others have been there before me. lemire's Winter Fly is a great example of a simple pattern in the right colors to move stubborn fish. harry would only use this fly in extreme conditions but I find it just as effective in low clear water. This is a Spey style version. Try one!

    Thread - Red
    Tag and Underlayment - Flat Silver
    Rib - Oval Silver
    Body - Coral Dubbing, coarse and buggy
    Spey Hackle - Coral
    Wing - Mallard Flank

    Speyman, Very nice tie. Looks like another that will be gracing my box, thanks to your posts. I really liked your Black Brahan and did a single hook version. A pic of it is in the gallery. Great posts. Keep them headed our way.

    Jeremy,
    Is that perhaps Paul Arden of Sexyloops.com casting in your avatare? I am willing to put money on it, looking at the backcast pause and forward haul. Anyways, he is fishing with one of us, Worldanglr right now.

    Peace,
    Andy
