    Sorry I didn't get on it sooner. I have been having some camera troubles, so all I have right now is some older shots.

    Kelvin asked me to start a July fly salon. I chose steelhead wet flies, single hook patterns.

    Looking for "classic" steelhead flies. Try to keep the big wigglies at a minimum for this one

    Although Harry Lemire is always rmembered for his tied-in-hand Atlantic salmon flies, his legacy included a lot of interesting and innovative steelhead patterns as well. Best-known is probably the Grease-Liner, but here are a couple more; the Thompson River Caddis and the Fall Caddis. The two differ mostly in the Thompson River Caddis' use of pheasant "church window" feathers laid flat and the Fall Caddis' paired and tented hen hackle wings.

    DSC02810.JPG Not sure if this is a single or multiple entry salon?? Anyway, here are a few. If it is a single entry salon then I'll enter the GREEN SPRUCE.
    As you can see, I've been on a kind of green kick. Not done yet:)
