    I took a break from steelhead tying to work up one of my favorite trout flies for this spring. Change it up to match your local conditions or materials.

    Thomas is right about the fishability of this fly. My standard omits the bead but the bead would certainly help with swinging a little deeper as is necessary at times.

    Thanks for sharing Thomas!
