Sweet steelhead pattern.

When I saw your dubbing blend, I was reminded of a blend that I learned from Mr. Nick Pionessa, owner of the Oak Orchard Fly shop. His grapefruit dubbing blend is a 50/50 mixture of hot pink and hot yellow yarn, chopped up and blended together. It looks like an intense grapefruit colored tups blend. Really nice stuff. I will give your blend a try, and add it to my steelhead combinations.

Thanks for sharing. ;)
