    Sat down at the vise thinking about late winter steelhead here in the great lakes region . Thinking that these may be just the ticket for cool , clear waters of late winter , just before the snow melts and causes the torrents of spring . Hope you like them .

    Thanks guys ... glad you like them .

    The hooks are Alec Jackson SI (Steelhead Irons) size #10 with barbs pinched and the overwing is Galwell . The hooks are very similar to Partridge CS10/2's ..... proportion ratios are the same with less curvature in the shank .
