    I'm a noob to steelheading in general, and considering my extremely limited tying skills and steelhead fly materials, I put this together. It's somewhat modeled after the General Practicioner. Will this catch a steelhead? What can I do to improve it?

    If it will swim, it will catch. Go fish.

    Looks great to me! It'll definitely catch fish... only thing I'd say to improve it is to pinch that barb! :D

    Cheers,
