i am a pro tier and was playing with a new color and on a small shank for steelhead. just wanted some thought on this fly. its Steelhead Orange. i love this color. its new from Fish Hunter and im having a blast with it. mixing it with everything and has been working great in the salt water for SRC and Residential coho.



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

Looks good to me.

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

It is very nice. Could you please provide a recipe? I too like the addition of the orange saddle hackles.

tail: Steelhead Orange saddle hackle
body: Salmon uz estaz
Under callorr: Dark Lilac hackle
Under Wing Flash: Gold flashabou
wing: SteelHead Orange Marabou
Callor: Orange Guinea
Thread: hot red.

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.

also if you want to see many more of my flies check out my facebook page. BeachMen Fly Tying
