  2. That's a nice color of orange for steelhead. In theory, it should work (if steelhead existed) :)

    Looks good to me.
  3. i got my hope up. i am 1 for 4 landed for hook ups so i got my hopes up.
  4. I like the addition of the orange saddle hackle feathers to the pattern.
  5. Simple, sexy, and has some contrast to boot. It'll fish for sure.
  6. Yes Flyborg
  7. Looks like you have some saddle in there
  8. I like it, it looks fluttery
    the collar makes it just a little darker at the head which is nice, I bet when it gets wet it will have a very barred look.
    No flash? I think a few strands of crystal would look nice
    cool tie
  9. Pro Tyer? lol

    i tied this on a 25mm skull head shank. also keep in mind that the SteelHead Orange color is a very new color from Fish Hunter so if you have a local shop that has Fish Hunter keep an eye out it should be showing up very soon. My Dad is Rueben he works there so i get to play and ee what i can do with a lot of the new colors. Puget Sound is one shop that i know has Fish Hunter.

  14. Thats cute. It's funny when people claim to be pros at anything on the internet. Anyway, cool fly.
  15. i did not claim it untill people told me i was.
  16. Beachmen, if you sell your flies at a commercial rate, that makes you a pro fly tyer. Doesn't matter, don't let anyone give you a bad time. It's a beautiful pattern.
