Deschutes Madness


Hook - Gamakatsu T10-6H or equivalent

Thread - Glo brite #3 fluorescent red floss

Tag - Flat gold tinsel and tying thread

Tail - Fluorescent red floss or multiple strands of glo brite #3 floss

Ribbing - Purple crystal chenille

Body - Fluorescent red floss or tying thread

Collar - Purple hen hackle

Wing - Purple calf tail and strands of purple krystal flash

There are various recipes for the steelhead fly. 

My dyeing skills on the purple calf tail leaves a lot to be desired. 

It just came out a lighter shade than I wanted.
