In my recent video, I feature Dave Stewart, host of the Wet Fly Swing podcast.  He ties the Benevolent Dictator for us, one of his favorite summer steelhead patterns.  Enjoy!

Been a few years I have fished for Steelhead. When they are running it's a two hour drive and it is crowded and most of them are aholes. I have seen people tying on a new fly and some dick steps up next to them and cast into their hole. But enough of that.

Though I don't fish steelies, I have to tie some of these just because I like the looks of them. Nice, really nice.

Thanks!  Dave did a great job on this one...
