These will work nicely on steelhead.

Great name.
Nope, no added weight.

Swarbrick's Winter Brown

Don't think I previosly posted this old pic (from 14 years ago) of John Swarbrick's Winter Brown. One of my MANY first attempts at doing North County dressings.

Rusty Scupper Nymph

Have no idea why it's called a nymph and not a soft hackle nor why I tied these in 2007.

Royal Charlie (Nathaniel Hunt)

I have no idea where I saw the original dressing but I tied these back in 2015 according to the date info for the pic . Also don't know where I stashed those that I tied....or gave them away, probably.

Red Fox Belly Soft Hackles

Found this old pic of a drssing that I did in 2010 for a friend. I had tied a few "on a lark" and he tried them one day while we were fishing. He had so many hits, he wouldn't; fish anything else that day. Gave hime all that I tied .... he was one happy camper!

Re: The Dark Moorgame

Nicely tied fly dressing. I opt for the simpler dressing (I'm old and tired) - without a peacock herl head.

My apologies, wish I had the materials to duplicate your dressing .... but the colors got me really interested to try a few bad immitations!

Re: Plover and Yellow

Lovely and any dressing with Plover is good, as far as I'm concerned.
