Van Zandt

Steelhead Fly

Josh Van Zandt of Eureka, California, originated this pattern around 1900.

Hooks - MUS80500BL, MUS80501 BL, TMC7999, DA12441 or equivalent

Thread - Red

Tail - Crimson red hackle barbs

Ribbing - Silver wire

Body - Peacock herl

Hackle - Crimson red tied on as a collar and tied back and down

Wing - Crimson red calf tail tied over the body.  The original wing on this fly was red goose quill

Fish Flies: The Encyclopedia of the Fly Tier's Art - Terry Hellekson

Any similarity to a previously known published fly pattern is purely coincidental
