Fish eat fish (inciting the bite, or some provocative creature)

This pattern is not typical of West Coast Steelhead patterns. But it obviously has a good look. I imagine it would be great for Brown Trout. (East Lake-Oregon) The olive color would be a good color to experiment with in the low, clearer waters of Summer for steelhead . I am by no means an expert, but I do find the differences in Great Lakes Steelheading and West Coast very interesting. I think an open mind is important in order to borrow from all the people out there doing it for real on their home waters and figuring out what works and what doesn’t.  An example is the trend a few years ago, of using trout nymphing techniques with oversized nymphs for steelhead…this flew into the face of the traditional technique of swinging patterns. But added to the arsenal of steelheading. Today the craze or passionate addiction of a two hander further adds to the arsenal. All good!

Steelhead’s Old Seducers (not to forget the simple)

With all the innovation in steelhead flies toward the larger profile, it is easy to forget the smaller, sleaker, proven profile. Beauty for the beast.

I recently saved this shot, but neglected to note the source….sorry.  A very pretty fly and productive, I am sure.
