  10. Hook: Scud 12-18 Bead: Nickel or Black Body: Superfine Rib: Pearl Krystal Flash Back: Pheasant Tail Wing: White Antron Thorax: Peacock Herl Legs: Hungarian Partridge This has been one of my best searching patterns in mid to late spring. I tie 2 versions. One with yellow Superfine belly and one with green. And for those who care about the how http://www.theanglersnet.com/Fly-Fishing-V...n=6&VID=176
  11. Thanks Tompa! You are too kind. Your flies are inspiring! I think they are just the tickets for our spring steelhead heading back down the river feeding on salmon smolts. Your wings are fuller and I will try the techniques you say. I think my problems with the cones stem from too much thread. The only available for me is 8/0. I will search for recomendations.
  12. Sometimes You Just Have to sit back, relax and tie something out of a book. Making up steelhead flies as I go along has got my head hurting lately. And since they don't work anyways, I got out Dec's book (My Bible) and tied the Usk Grub. Had to sub the Badger Hackle with a Silver and a Brown one but I think it works
  13. Sweet! This is one of my favorite Chinook patterns, I often replace the yellow with Chartruece and catch all sorts of stuff!
  14. First Attempts It was suggested by a respected friend that mid-winter, I should attempt to add realism into my steelhead arsenal I think these need work but will fish And because I couldn't help myself with these colors Suggestions encouraged, Tompa? Please Help You have inspired me
