a true way to hammer steelhead,

"This fly is excellent and has landed many 12-16 pound steelies for me in the white river. It will trigger a strike when spawn eggs will not.
CS Class of 1979"

"These are great when the chrome gets a bit selective. I go to this instead of natural colors. It has out-fished any other steelhead fly I've used..."

"This fly is deadly on salmon river steelhead. I use this fly all winter long with great success. The steelies won't have a chance. Great product."

"Sault Ste. Marie, Soo Rapids – late spring steelhead – the chartreuse turned out to be the go to fly for low light conditions. Dead drift with high stick nymphing technique. Durable construction outlast multiple hookups. On a recent visit to the rapids this fly was the bomb when the evening feeding window opened up. Restocking with a dozen for next year’s pilgrimage."

Steelhead loved to be Hammered.,
March 26, 2008
By: Udut
from New York
"In Upstate NY on the Salmon River it's Steelhead fishing once the Salmon have migrated and when those runs of dime silver steelies make their move they just love this fly. When everyone else is shooting the heavy hardware and trying to force a bite people will ask me what is that fly your using and I have changed a few minds. It's a main staple in my flybox for Steelhead, Coho's and the Chinook."
