    Anyone know where to find the recipe for the Lum Plum (steelhead fly) or can you post one here?

    A Google search tells me is a fly that the Deschutes Angler in Maupin has cooked up. If you really want that fly, I would not worry about tying it, but just drop a little coin at the DA shop, then post its pattern here.

    I see that some yarn is hard to get in order to make it, so the only choice is to buy it.

    http://www.deschutesangler.com/asp/fishingreport.asp is the page that talks about the Lum Plum.

    Designed by Amy Randall-Hazel, the Rx to the best of my knowledge is;

    HOOK - Salmon/Steelhead, up-turned loop eye
    TAG - Chartreuse Floss
    TAIL - Hot Orange Golden Pheasant Tippets
    BODY - Plum-colored Yarn
    RIB - Silver Oval Tinsel
    Collar/Hackle - Purple-dyed Guinea
    WING - Polar Bear, accented with a few strands of Silver Holographic Flashabou
    HEAD - Purple thread

    I tie a slightly 'dressier' version (Faux Lum Plum) of the L.P. with combination Orange G.P. Crest and Tippet Tail, an Ostrich Herl Butt, and "Plum" Iridescent Dubbing in the body. I also have the LP tied as a Tube Fly

    If you'd like a macro (.jpg) of either dressing, just shoot me an e-mail (riverratlure@hotmail.com) and I'll try to accomodate.
