    I'd be happy to give it a test because it sounds like it might be a killer. I'd like to see a pic though since I'm not to sure of the proportions. What do you call this?
    P.S. I'm planning a trip up there next summer or fall. I have to go on the cheap. Thought about staying in somebodie's vacant cabin for a week and getting in and out to it by bush plane. Do you have any place in mind or contacts I might make?

    Nice looking fly. I would be more incline to try it first on cutts but it should catch steelhead also.
