Presentation Tips: This has become one of my favorite buggers. So far I have only used it in Arkansas for trout, but I'm sure it would take steelhead as well. With a brief conversation with Brother Hubbard, he mentioned his success on smallies on his waters. It's a perfect high water bug and sinks like a rock.
