    I made a few variations to my Yarnie patterns to make them more diverse and able to fit into many fly fishing situations. With these patterns, I would be able to use them when Spey casting, swinging with my single hand or switch, dry fly or tight line nymphing.

    Around these parts, when it comes to fooling steelhead, it's hard to beat a combination of hot pink and chartreuse.

    I've caught more steelhead on patterns tied in pink and chartreuse than any others.

    Here is another one of my favorites. These are all tied on a Gamakatsu C14S #2. It's a great hook for Yarnies, Glo-bugs, stingers or for pegging beads. An all around hook for the all around fly fisherman and tyer.

    The swingers reference could easily be interpreted as a double entendre' also.
